During the week, I’m only cooking for myself. While it is possible to cook single servings of meals (last night’s sad stir-fry was an example), sometimes there are leftovers to use. I have a couple of choices in how I might use them- packed for lunch, or for another dinner. I can also freeze them for later, depending on what it is.
Tonight’s meal makes use of the leftover Chickpea Piccata from the other night. There are a lot of creative ways that you can use such things- I’m thinking a sandwich or wrap would be pretty awesome, but I didn’t have such fixings. I do have a lot of greens, so a salad it was.
What’s the difference between this and how I served it when it wasn’t leftovers? The ratio of greens. Since I didn’t have a whole lot left, most of my meal was greens. And that’s a good thing.
