Smorgasbord

July 15, 2009

When we were growing up, my mom would pull everything out the fridge every 2-3 weeks, pile it up on the counter and hand us a plate. We called it “Smorgasbord” and as a kid, I thought it was the coolest thing in the world. As the cook, now I get why my mom did that. There’s nothing more annoying than whipping up yet another meal when there’s at least 2-3 days worth of leftovers taking up real estate in your fridge. After hosting both sets of our parents, one sibling and two out of town friends over the course of one weekend, we had some serious leftovers hanging out in our fridge. So Sunday afternoon, I pulled everything out, piled it up on the counter and handed out the plates.

Anything You Want, We Got It.

Anything You Want, We Got It.

 

This is one of the most delicious meals I think I’ve had in awhile! Toasted whole wheat bread and snow peas with hummus, and a salad with lunchmeat turkey, strawberries and balsamic vinegar. Sometimes the most simple meals taste the most delicious!

Not bad for leftovers
