Chef Horse gets down with leftovers.

The other evening, I had leftover ham and potatoes for dinner. Being a culinary snob, I had to tweak things a bit. My Midwestern friends had made the scalloped potatoes a bit too creamy, and not cheesy enough (I didn't tell them that), so I baked the potatoes for maybe 8 minutes at 375 with some Brie on top. The result was crunchy and delicious, as I like it. They're very sweet to send me home with a "care package" whenever I go over there, whether it's to play music or just sit around and drink and dine. This time we watched the New Years festivities on TV, something I don't often do. Have you done any good "tweaks" to your leftovers over the past few days?

Looks good. Ham is one of my favorites. We had lots of turkey leftover so there were both hot and cold turkey sandwiches, turkey pot pie and turkey stew. The pie and stew is in the freezer to enjoy at a later date. For now we are all turkeyed out!

@TheHorse Nope - for New Year's Day, we had a traditional Japanese feast at my parents' house. We had stuff like sashimi (raw fish), norimaki (a sushi with veggies), various beans and pickley things, sekihan (steamed rice with azuki beans) . . . and there's no way all that can be thrown into a soup .

Yes I did, I ate Venison. I made a venison meatloaf for Tony on New Year day. This morning, yes for breakfast, I made cold meatloaf sandwiched with ketchup for me and bbq sauce for him. Finished off those leftovers. I do not eat much read meat at all, I prefer wild. When I do.
