Loving Leftovers

If you're like us, who just cut up vegetables and more vegetables with no regard for the exact amount the recipe calls for, you too, might end up with lots of leftover roasted vegetables when all the quesadillas have been made and eaten. This is not a bad thing!

Think of all the things you could do with those savory vegetables, besides the obvious choice - Roasted Veggie Quesadillas tomorrow night! But, if you're looking for something different.....

Roasted Veggies in your morning omelet!

You wake up in the morning and you want a quick and healthy breakfast - what DO You DO? You break a few eggs into a bowl, pour a little milk in for fun, sprinkle in a touch of salt, maybe some pepper - don't go spastic - remember, the veggies are already all spiced up. Pour the eggs in the heated skillet and spoon in some roasted vegetables. When it's almost done, choose a cheese, like Parm or Romano and dust the omelet with it. Voila! Loving leftovers at breakfast!

But what if you only eat oatmeal for breakfast? Well, then save the veggers for dinner. Remember the Portabellas you picked up the other day because you were planning on making the Italian Stuffed Portabellas from the March 19th post? Well, instead of using only the red peppers like the recipe "suggests", go crazy and kick up your veggie intake for the day by dropping a spoonful or two in with those peppers - they won't mind. They probably hate being the only vegetable swimming in the cheese anyway.

See! Loving leftovers for dinner too!
