Corr, how leftovers make wonderful lunches.

Does that plate of deliciousness just not look too good to be true!?!

Here we have roasted peppers, green beans and spicy aubergine with homemade gluten free bread, piping hot and enjoyed thoroughly. Well, by myself at least as the other family members declined to eat said dinner last night and filled themselves up on cereal and peanut butter sandwiches.

While they missed out it meant that I had more than enough to eat for today’s lunch and being such a freezing cold day at that it was much appreciated. Good food can really brighten your day, especially when it’s a no-effort-heat-it-up from leftovers lunch.

I was especially pleased with the bread as I simply followed the packets recipe weeks ago and froze it after slicing. The bread mix is about a year out of date, a bag I found hidden at the back of the cupboard!

It was warm, comforting and starchy with that extra feel good factor that comes when you eat your vegetables and I give myself plus points for using up cupboard fodder, even just a little.

Feeling flushed with my success at accidental ‘batch’ cooking I made extra mushroom stroganoff with pasta today – unfortunately not photo worthy as the chestnut mushrooms turned it a strange browny grey colour – but I know I’ll be looking forward to it at lunch time.
