We love snacking on cold meat. It can be anything from grilled steak, grilled pork or corned beef and just a little protein can take the edge off your hunger.
If a leftover stays in the fridge too long without being eaten we give it to the dogs. Our dogs eat what we eat, interspersed with dry food, and that has never changed. They are very healthy dogs and not overweight. The big plus is that we never have any vet bills.
I use the freezer a lot for leftovers, particularly cakes, muffins and slices. I usually freeze half of what I cook and I always have something to pull out of the freezer when unexpected guests arrive.
This week our gardener gave us mangoes from her parents mango farm. They are huge. I have made a large batch of fruit salad that we have been devouring but as they are so large one is enough for a fruit salad. They have been sitting on the bench looking at me so today I decided to cut them up and freeze them for use in the middle of the year when mangoes are scarce and overpriced. Mangoes freeze beautifully so they can be used in mango cheesecake or even muffins. Of course Mango Daiquiri would also be nice :-)
