Leftovers are common here.
But we also eat a lot of veggie soup. Add whatever veggies you have to some stock and put in some spices and maybe some tomato sauce too.
Canned wild salmon. Mix this with boiled eggs and mustard or mayo. Eat it on some romaine or whole grain bread with the lettuce of couse.
quiches are nice to make ahead. Good for using up leftovers and random bits. Like ham and tomato with spinach.
celery and PB can be nice. Pair with a small salad.
Fruit salad is good in season. Just mix up everything you like and add a dollop of yogurt and some wheat germ or flax.
quick veggie stir fry. Throw in some frozen veggies and a bit of garlic, ginger and soy sauce. If you have some leftover rice or some noodles put this on top.
salmon patties. Again with the wild salmon canned, deboned and drained obviously. Mix in an egg, some corn meal, a bit of flour, salt, a chopped up onion (I always use sweet onions), and a bit of milk. Mix together and form patties. Lightly fry in olive oil and serve with lemon juice. dd loves this meal. again with the side salad.
grilled cheese and soup. Half of each is nice.
none of these will take more than 10 minutes to make and cook and they are pretty healthy. I do try to eat things high in protein otherwise I'm just starving again in a few minutes.
Mom of a 7 yr old, 4 yr old, and 1 yr old. Wow. How did that happen?
