Leftovers Repurposing Time…….

Busy baking night and its time to make something for dinner in the midst of it all!


Fridge finds consisted of:

  • 1 leftover breaded chicken cutlet from last night
  • 2 leftover helpings of last nights rice
  • 1 jalapeño pepper
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • bunch of green onions (out of onions, that is soooo not right)
  • 1 lamb steak
  • 1 box of Pearled Couscous – Basil and Herb flavored
  • Fresh Rosemary

There wasn’t enough of anything to make enough for 2 of us (rest of the family not in tonight)!

So here is what I ended up with:


Chopped up the Jalapeño Pepper, Garlic, Green Onions and Chicken cutlet, sautéed them lightly in a pan with a tad of olive oil, and then in went the rice!



Made the Couscous, chopped up the lamb steak, some garlic and rosemary and sautéed it in the pan previously used for the above. Once done, served it on the bed of Couscous…..plus a lovely dollop of mint jelly!


Now back to baking………..and guess what, the weekend is nearly here!!!!!
