So last time we had wraps we had a lot of leftovers. I hate wasting food so to finish every last bite I made a lunch and dinner out of them. For lunch I used the bean sprouts, lettuce, cucumber, mint, beef, shrimp, and vermicelli to make a vermicelli bowl for the hubby and kiddies. Here’s what my bowl looked like. I also poured in some of that fish sauce that I mixed.
Even after that lunch we still had a lot of leftovers so I stir-fried some bean sprouts, chives, garlic, and beef together. I also added some white wine and soy sauce.
Still had some leftover chives so I dumped the rest of those in with some chopped garlic and pan-fried them. Two tablespoons of this abalone sauce were added as well.
Then I whisked 6 large eggs together and poured the eggs in with the chives. Kind of like a chive omelette but meant to be eaten with rice rather than by itself.
The last two dishes were eaten as sides with rice. Three simple dishes made all with leftovers. They may not have been extravagant dishes but at least nothing was wasted. One important thing I want to make sure I teach my kids is never to waste food because there are so many people out there who don’t have enough to eat. Luv it when no food is gone to waste.
Now some preparation for tonight’s dinner. So in my last post I said I wanted to try my new Bullet Express. I didn’t have much time to try it last night but I was so eager so I just made a citrus sauce to prep for my citrus grilled chicken breasts. I got to try out the juicer: (please excuse my sexy flannel cow pj’s haha)
And the meal mixer:
In the fridge it went overnight to soak in the flavors. For obvious copyright reasons I’m not even going to chance posting the recipe. I’m still an amateur at this so I’ll have to look into that matter.
So far I’m not too impressed with this machine yet but I’ll definitely reevaluate my opinions after I’ve tried making more stuff with it. I plan to make a breakfast, salad, another dinner, and a cheese cake first before I give it my full evaluation. I have high expectations for the Bullet Express because I loved my Magic Bullet so much. We’ll have to see if I love this machine as much. I’ll definitely have a more thorough review on the Bullet Express when I get a chance. One thing I’ve learned with having kids is never to plan anything. That drives the OCD in me crazy haha. Hope you’re having a great start to your week.
