Today I am watching the chew. they are talking about leftovers. Their stays say that we throw out half of our food. They are advocating 3 trips a week to the store. That is a way to spend twice what you need to spend. That's probably why they think a meal costs 25.00 Lol. The trick is to stay on top of your perishables and find ways to use then up or pit them up.
Roast chicken is becoming chicken salad and chicken crepes.
Chicken crepes are white sauce, leftover veggies, parm and chicken. Sounds good with spaghetti or noodles.
Just a note
