Leftovers, Bleh….

Last night Poison Ivy came over so we could do a little holiday celebrating in the kitchen.  So knowing that we would need a somewhat clean area to work I really didn’t want to make dinner, Thai food to the rescue.  Yummy food, easy clean-up pretty much equals perfect.

Normally, that would be the end of it, but last night we had a lot of leftovers and since I met Poison Ivy for a lunch play date today they didn’t get eaten for lunch.  So here we are at dinnertime with a large quantity of Thai food leftover.  Now I could just toss them and be done with it, but it just seems like such a waste, no, they will be consumed.  Here’s the deal, I’m not a fan of leftovers the majority of the time when it comes to dinner.  I love them for lunch, even breakfast, but for dinner I want something new.  So to satisfy my need to not waste the leftovers and also have something new I decided to add some sweet and sour pork to dinner.  Super easy, will make eating the Thai food so much better and I’ll have some food for tomorrow’s lunch…

I love my recipe for sweet and sour sauce.  It can be used with pork, chicken, beef (crispy fried), and tofu.  No, it’s not a Thai dish, but in my house we go by my rules!!!  So now I’m good with eating the leftovers.  I didn’t make the amount I would if it were going to be the only dish served, I mean I really don’t want to have the leftover issue again tomorrow night, right?
