Leftovers

I had lots of food leftover from the reception, now some people hate leftovers but not me. I love them because I'm the cook at our house and leftovers mean one less meal to prepare, just heat and serve.

The roast potatoes were diced and individually frozen on a cookie sheet and then into Ziploc bags, these will be great as hash browns.

The barbecued chicken was also individually frozen..I'll use the meat in salads or sandwiches.

And the dinner rolls which are now stale were made into croutons, very easy.




I cut the rolls into smallish chunks.


Then I tossed the bread chunks in a large bowl into which I put about 1/2 cup of olive oil, dried oregano and rosemary and garlic powder.







Placed them onto a cookie sheet and into a slow oven until dried and crisp.







And when the croutons are cold I stored them in a large plastic bag.

We enjoy leftovers as well. Saves cooking and saves those $$.
