Keep a zip-lock bag in the freezer to add even the smallest leftovers into. After several weeks transfer the content into a crock-pot adding leftovers from the refrigerator add rice seasonings, onions. The more varieties of leftovers like different meats and veggies the better. Bet you get compliments

    I'll be honest...I'm slightly disturbed by this idea. .... I mean... Spaghetti leftovers mixed with mexican mixed with potpie?

But like if we had a fair amount of pot pie left over, she might recycle it into a New potpie - just roll out some more dough, pimp up the leftovers with some more veggies and away we went.

Doubtless I'm beginning to show my age here... :-) Or maybe I'm just a disturbed individual!! ;-)

    My mom used to do this, "back in the day" - of course, this was before zip-lock bags were invented, so she had one of her 1950's vintage Tupperware pieces, a big 2 quart pitcher that she slung all the leftover cooked veggies especially the "juices" left over - we always had beef or chicken or turkey. Italian...Mexican... it didn't matter. Whatever she had the most leftover with, that's how she seasoned it in the end. But actually spaghetti noodles go quite well with Mexican flavors (especially since our "Italian Style" was back in the day before the grocery stores out in the boondocks could even carry exotic foods imported from Italy, so it's really all the "American" version of whatever foreign we were trying to pretend like it was.

    Too good an idea to be wasted!
