Planned overs: Beef pot pie
After clearing out the fridge yesterday, I fixed myself a plate with leftovers: meatloaf, egg noodles, and some canned corn. Worked, food waste avoided, items used up. Great.
On to tonight's dinner: I will be reinventing Wednesday's beef stew into a pot pie filling, also using a small container of beef-onion-mushroom gravy to thin the filling out a bit. I plan on making a double crust pie for mine this afternoon.
Had quite a bit of trouble with the crust, so I ended up making a lattice topped (don't look too closely, it's far from perfect!) pot pie. Tasted quite good on a cold night. Of course, I used the table top convection oven to bake this off, saving electricity in the process.
