2 days a week, "leftovers" is the theme of my dinner menus: Wednesdays, DS eats with Dad (sometimes DD joins them) and Fridays also tends to be dinner for 2. A third leftovers night may happen come the weekend as Saturday's menu plan for dinner tends to be soup/sandwich-a natural vehicle for using foodstuffs up before they turn.
Tonight's leftover menu will be steak fajitas on flour tortillas, with a side of canned corn. I will be using up leftover Porterhouse steaks that proved to be too much for all of us, portion wise (I am not a big meat eater). Even DS couldn't finish his! I will use some soy sauce that I decanted from take out packets into a small jar, as well as the remains of a Dollar Tree pkg of fzn multi colored peppers and onion strips, a small tub of leftover Chinese dumpling sauce (like a sesame seed infused soy sauce), sesame oil blended with some vegetable oil, flour tortillas. Easy-peasy!
Once I trimmed the meat off of the bones, there was plenty of meat here; while I am only feeding 2 tonight, I easily could feed 3.
Later today, this will be strained and then I will chill it and reserve any beef tallow, before freezing the remaining broth. Come cooler weather, the addition of some homemade broth to our weekly (some weeks, it ends up being several batches a week!)soup pot will be welcomed.
