L'art d'accommoder les restes

That means "the art of making the most of leftovers." On Sunday I diced up some of the vegetables and meat from the potée (boiled dinner) that I made on Saturday and, using the bouillon that the vegetables and meat had cooked in, I made turkey-barley soup. Yum.

Yesterday, I cut up the rest of the vegetables into bigger cubes, spread them out in a big baking dish, drizzled olive oil on them, and roasted them in the oven. That was good too. It's important to eat your vegetables.

P.S. No news about the car yet. When I dropped it off yesterday, it was supposed to have its inspection between 3 and 4 p.m. Walt and I and drove back over there at about 5 and were told the guy hadn't yet been able to to look at it. So we have to go again today and see if it's ready. I'll call this time, before we drive over there.


  1. You cook like my Mom. She always made great meals and never wasted anything.

  2. Nothing better than roasted vegetables with olive oil. Hope all's well with the car.

  3. Oven-roasted vegetables are the best!!!


What's on your mind? Qu'avez-vous à me dire ?
