Planned Overs

Turkey a la King
Are you tired of eating the same leftover meal two or three days in a row? Why not turn your leftovers into something new. For example, if you are having cooked salmon tonight, use your leftover salmon tomorrow night in pasta with cream sauce or how about using your leftover pulled pork in a taco or as a topping on a homemade pizza? In general, you can use your leftover meat, poultry or fish the next day in your favourite salad, stir fry, pasta dish, casserole or soup.

Unleash your inner foodie and create your own planned overs, or if you need some inspiration, try these great everyday “planned over” recipes ideas:
