More Leftovers

I've been really remiss about a lot of things the last month or so, like posting every Monday at Fatal Foodies (BAD Dana!) and cooking. Luckily I had Malibu Shark Attack on SyFy and watching the prehistoric horned sharks chow down on two good looking ingenues reminded me I have a post up tomorrow. Thank you, SyFy! Your crappy movies really CAN be for good and not for evil!

As for the cooking, Dave has been working at a temp job where lunch is catered daily, so he brings home vast quantities of leftovers whenever he works there. This week he brought home a huge bag of roasted veggies (onions, red & green peppers and tomatoes), Indian style chicken (lightly spiced), pita bread, rice, bags of deli meats and a bunch of sliced muenster cheese. I've basically been writing like a fiend (mega deadline due Labor Day evening), so lunch has been a slice or two of roast beef or turkey with a slice of muenster cheese tossed in. Dinner tonight was the chicken, minced to little bits, cooked in yellow curry sauce (courtesy of Trader Joe's). Dave had the chicken with pita and some of the roasted veggies; I had the chicken over a piece of pita warmed up in a skillet with a wee bit of muenster cheese and fresh sliced tomatoes. Prep time: five minutes.

What we don't eat of the deli meat will go to the kitties. What a great way to save time and money!

I used to work with a girl who was married to a chef. We were always jealous of her lunch, which consisted of leftovers from the restaurant.
