Leftovers: Feeding Friends

28 Dec

Day 3 post Christmas (Day 4, if you count Eve), and the leftovers are still doing their job.

Home from making lattes and teas, violin girl dropped by, along with a couple of hometown friends (one, back from college). Hungry and happy, they sat at the kitchen table, while Kaukab’s daughter pulled out various bowls from the fridge, along with some fresh mushrooms to saute.

While the leftovers heated themselves in the micro, mushrooms were sauteed in butter (of course) and hit with cracked black pepper and some sea salt, and finished off with a splash (or two) of sherry and some fresh thyme.

The leftover menu: pot roast with a couple of roasted potatoes, 1/4C mashed potatoes, 1C cranberry/apple compote, 8oz. sauteed mushrooms, several slices of ham. Split among the three, it was the perfect impromptu meal devised in some time.

Leftovers. Never underestimate ’em.
