Ok, so I lied a bit when I said I wasn’t going to have anymore posts this week. But, at the time it was true. I just happened to have the chance to make some changes. I was inspired by Joanna who continually updates the look of her blog with fun tweaks. I decided I hadn’t done it for a while. I changed the tagline sometime ago, but you might not have even noticed it. Now, I’ve changed it again to reflect upcoming changes to the blog!
Today is my dad’s birthday! I think I can give him partial credit for this blog because I have made a bunch of recipes I wouldn’t have made if it wasn’t for him. Irish Soda Bread is one that I definitely wouldn’t have felt up for. He’s so important to my baking, that he has a whole section on here of recipes I have made for him. You might say that there aren’t that many there, compared to some of my other categories. But, my dad has a weakness for certain recipes. As a result, he gets lots of duplicates throughout the year.
I often make side dishes and entrees, then have leftover sides but not protein. What to do? Well, I can always make another entree, or repeat the meal. But, it helps jazz up our weeknight meals if I throw in a twist. Today I am sharing some common ways I stretch my leftovers. If you have some ideas, feel free to share!!
