The day before I do the grocery shopping, I try to use up any nice leftovers.

Last night, I was rushed for time, and found that I had half a cooked pork chop, half a serving of cooked frenched green beans, half a serving of home made french fries, half an onion, a quarter of a green pepper, seven mushrooms, and 3 slices of bacon. Plus 4 egg yolks that my muscle building son seems to think are poisonous.

So I cut the bacon into pieces, and while it fried, I slivered the pork chop, and cut up the fries and the mushrooms. Then I removed the bacon, and sauteed the mushrooms, pork, and the fries in the bacon fat. As soon as they were hot, I added diced green pepper and onion, and when the veg were fork tender, I added the cooked green beans.

While all of that fried, I added 3 eggs to the egg yolks and whipped them with a fork. Then I poured the eggs over the hot ingredients, turned the heat down, and when the bottom of the eggs were cooked, I flipped them in sections, then put slices of old cheddar on top.

We both thought the result was delicious. And I was saved the bother of really cooking a meal. And leftovers that wouldn't have kept and would have gone into the garbage turned out to be just as good as the meals that all the bits came from.

Yum, you're making me very hungry.

And I have always had my best ideas from using what I had that didn't fit with any recipe I knew. laugh

I think it's a suggestion of what you should put together...

Like the serving suggestion of "Defrost" on frozen food items.

My hubby comes home often and takes all the veggies in the fridge and cooks them like a stirfry. Then finds some meat and adds that.. Oh boy do I like that when he cooks and I eat..

But I am the cleaner.. No matter what he/I do.. I am the cleaner..

Guess when the man retires, so do I wink
