Sounds disgusting, and the picture doesn’t look too appetizing. But, this is what happens when I am not home and Mr. Cyclist scavenges through the freezer and cupboard to create a dinner of leftovers.
Definition of garbage dinner: Take a lot of your odds and ends and leftover foods, and combine them into a one-pot meal tastefully and somewhat artfully.
I heard of someone else who uses this term “garbage dinner”, but I can’t think of who. It’s a pretty smart idea. That way, you don’t have little bags of this and that hanging out in the pantry until you have to throw them away.
For our meal, we had lots of frozen vegetables: peas, broccoli, cauliflower, green beans, brussels sprouts, carrots, peppers, onions, and potatoes cooked in a curry sauce (that is the dark ugly color you see). Served on top of whole wheat egg noodles. With an egg on top for protein. Haha! The curry sauce was pretty tasty and I like vegetables, so I enjoyed this meal.
Have you ever made meals out of leftovers like this?
