Leftovers

I enjoyed the visit with my sister-in-law last week--walking, talking, shopping, taking in a movie (Nebraska), and going out to eat.

I had a left over rotisserie chicken, leftover salad greens, leftover vegetables.  So this week I have been eating...guess what?...leftovers!


Chicken on a bed of baby greens topped with a farro, grape and apple salad.  There is a slice of avocado tossed in there as well.

And I made a lovely chicken soup.  It was good today when I got home from the horse barn.  It was not so cold, but really quite windy.  Also, it was a particularly large and a particularly, shall we say, energetic group today.  Team literacy was wiped out by the end of the morning; I can tell you that.  Whew!

So a hot shower and a hot bowl of soup were two very good things.

  3. I'll be having the soup tonight with chicken clubs. Then, I'll make chicken salad for some additional meals. Sorry to hear it's windy for you, but if you were home, you'd be having a blizzard!!

  5. You do come up with beautiful food.
    We have been eating turkey soup for the last three days, made from stock I made earlier and froze half of.. So lovely to have a hot, fragrant, comforting soup with so little work beyond the initial cooking. Now I have to come up with a new dinner plan.

  7. There is nothing better than Chicken Noodle Soup to warm the soul and body!!! We saw Nebraska also....loved it. Tragically funny.

  8. I grab so many leftovers that I am starting to feel like a homeless person. Even at the senior center they ask me first if I want to take home something from the kitchen that wasn't eaten by the rest. I definitely do not look like I am starving, but they must know that I don't cook much for myself. Your leftovers look wonderful.

  9. My husband and I never waste food - leftovers are a way of life for us (not so for our grandchildren). Buried in snow here in CO, that soup looks might good!
