Hello Dear Reader,
Fellow blogger and food writer, Suzy Bowlers, sent me a copy of her book "The leftovers handbook". It's far more than it claims. It has an A - Z of what to do with any ingredient you may have in your home. It gives advice on storage of food items and what to do with stray ingredients you have lying around in your store cupboard or freezer. It's a wealth of information. I love the idea of turning a half eaten bag of popcorn into a nutty crunchy snake that would be great in a lunch box. There are many ideas and suggestions for herbs and spices that I'd not thought of too. I love the idea, even as hip widening as it is, of sliced Christmas pudding fried in butter and served with custard. I've never thrown left over salad in soup, even though it's wilted, but I will in the future.
It's a great book and will be a favourite on my cookery book shelf.
Now the fun part! Over to you. I want to know your best leftover ideas. Come on.......plus the dirty food ideas............who would have thought of buttery fried Christmas pudding. If only Elvis had heard of that one!
Here's another favourite..........reheated or warmed leftover Yorkshire puddings served for breakfast with honey! I've got to try that one.................and then go for a very long run!
