Leftovers: Friend or Foe?

by admin

So I set out to make lunch for my preschool aged twins and I (the rest are at school).  The first stop was the fridge – what’s there for leftovers?  I discovered enough mac and cheese for the little guys, but not enough for me.  What to do?

Of the leftovers I saw the two that stood out to me were spaghetti noodles from the weekend and about 8 oz of roast beef from last night.  I first pondered making a coconut curry sauce and using the chipped beef, but that seemed a little weird.  Then I remembered this thing called beef stroganoff.  A creamy alfredo type sauce with beef and mushrooms usually.

I tried googling some recipes but ended up winging it.  Here’s what I did:

  • Creamy chipped beef on noodles8 oz cooked roast beef, chipped
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup leftover beef gravy
  • 1/3 cup sour cream
  • 1 tbsp garlic powder
  • 1 tbsp flaked dried onions
  • a shot of worchestershire sauce


Mix it all up in a pot and heat.  Serve over noodles.
