I’ve tried very hard to cut down on the amount of food we bought for Christmas this year so that we didn’t end up with lots of leftover food. I had a few things left over, and here’s what I did to use them up.
We a few roasted parsnips and carrots left from Christmas lunch. I chopped these up and I added them to a carrot based soup for lunch yesterday.
I also had some batter left over from the Yorkshire puddings. Normally I would have thrown it out, but I put it in the fridge and tonight cooked a second batch of Yorkshire puddings. I’ve frozen these – I don’t know if it will work out ok, but I thought it was worth a try rather than waste the rest of the batter.
We also had two portions of sticky toffee pudding and some sauce. I put these in the fridge and we had them yesterday evening as well.
The leftover meat was eaten cold with salad, and there is a small amount over which will go into sandwiches in the next couple of days.
How have you been using up your Christmas leftovers?
Until next time, Tawney x
