Leftovers Ala Larry

We have a fridge jammed full of leftovers and need to be about eating them, so our Tuesday meals continued Mondays desire to eat them up and not not cook.  What we don't get to will be made into gourmet dog food.

Tuesday's breakfast was simple - a reheated twice baked potato topped with a fried egg – big surprise huh? Not only was it good, but it contained four of my five food groups – potato, cheese, bacon, and egg (I passed on the glass of wine - my fruit).

Bev went off to town today and left me on my own, so for lunch, it was leftover crappie, with a little Slap Ya Mama cajun seasoning added, reheated in the toaster oven to re-crisp it, then laid on a slice of lightly toasted homemade sourdough bread, topped with sliced smoked Tillamock cheddar and heated again to melt the cheese.

Then it was  Vickie’s fish taco sauce (I could eat this stuff with a spoon).

And finally, shredded lettuce, split grape tomatoes, a little more Slap Ya Mama and wa-la, an open faced po-boy fish taco sandwich with cheese.

All I can say is, I wish I had more fish.

Supper was a bed of leftover lettuce and spinach, topped with thinly sliced and quickly sauteed  leftover Beef Wellington and bleu cheese dressing. Bev had this the night before, gave me a bite and I thought it was super good – beef filet, mushrooms, and bleu cheese dressing, how could it not be?  Of course the crust came off during handling - became a soft oddly shaped crouton.

For leftovers and virtually no cooking we ate mighty fine at Almost Heaven South this day.

Have a great day and thanks for stopping by.



  1. Looks like you did all that left over food up in gourmet style. I'm about at the tail end of leftovers, my ham bone is studiously simmering in the crockpot to flavor up some beans. I have to admit that darn potato topped egg made me instantly hungry.

  2. You do leftovers really really well. This all sounds amazing! I wouldn't want the leftovers to ever end!

  3. You are the king of leftovers! I love what you do with them every time!!

  4. Your breakfasts are always droolworthy! I want some eggs now.

  5. You and Bev did eat might fine!

    Happy New Year to you!!! Looking forward to enjoying your blog in 2011-


  6. Your left overs are first class, Larry. You've got me craving potatoes and eggs.

  7. You are, as we say, a clever lad. You do more with leftovers than most do with food first time around.I hope you've had a great day. Blessings...Mary

  8. Love your food groups, hilarious.
