144.6…The Art of Reheating

As you may know, I’m not the biggest fan of leftovers. There are some times, however, when it’s nice to just reheat something quick. Last night was exactly that night. My husband was working late and everyone was tired from the first day of school, even me. I liked how I was able to reheat leftovers from my Chicken Cacciatore that I made the other night.

All I had to do was make a quick salad to go with it. Dinner was done.

Breakfast this morning was scrambled egg beaters with turkey and salsa and an orange on the side.

I dropped the kids at school and hit the gym for an hour.

Lunch was as easy as last night’s dinner was. I reheated the beans and taco meat from a couple of nights ago, add lettuce, shredded cheddar cheese, Cholula hot sauce and tomatoes. Taco salad!

I just got back from getting groceries and need to leave soon to pick up the kids from school. The new school year has definitely begun!

What are your favorite leftovers? Mine usually involve some sort of sauce for pasta. They freeze and reheat really well usually.


  1. I love leftover pizza and cake.

  2. I am pretty good at repurposing as western food is not cheap here in taiwan. I try to use up all leftovers but don't have room to freeze much, sadly. I do freeze meat for taco salad and red sauce at times. Also shredded pork.
