Leftover Medley

Halfway through meal prep Sunday I decided to post this quick and yummy leftover dinner, hence the lack of follow-along photos. But this is so simple, I know you can do it without pictures! Concentrate, Malisa!

I took the slab of prime rib I'd brought home in this doggie box when IT Guy and I had a night on the town Friday evening, cut it up into little pieces, and pan stir-heated it in some EVOO (extra virgin olive oil). I boiled some just-like-homemade egg noodles (although I must admit I do like to make my own noodles. And they DO taste better than these but these were good too!).

I mixed the drained noodles, the drained meat, some leftover broccoli, a half can of Ro Tel original tomatoes with chili (froze the rest in a baggie for next time), a gob of freshly grated Parmesan cheese, and salt and pepper to taste.

Hmmm, it was prettier before it was mixed! Anyway...

...I added fresh-from-frozen biscuits and it was a quick, yummy leftover meal that didn't taste like leftovers.


  1. That looks yummy! And I LOVE frozen biscuits like those; the ones that are NOT pre-cooked. I used to do a step by step photo cooking blog... it was a pain in the rear taking pictures during the whole process, lol, but it was fun keeping up the blog for awhile. I did several posts about cooking enough at one meal to plan for several leftover meals. But I am definitely not a Rachel Ray fan.. can't stand her, lol.. the abbreviating extra virgin olive oil thing squicks me out.

  2. That's the hard part of left overs, making them not taste like leftovers. ;)

    This looks great.

  3. Love creative leftovers. Do you have any leftover leftovers, I'd like some! Haven't visited your blog in awhile, looks like I've missed out on a lot! Thanks for that great story about the "kisses!"

  4. Cher, why would YOU be using extra virgin anything? :) This was a totally multicultural dish...a little Mexican...a little Italian...a little Texan...Texmexalian!

    Don't be trying to make me feel guilty because you make your own noodles! (Jokes are running rampant through my brain. Don't say it. Don't say it. Don't say it.)


  5. I see you 'texanized' the Pasta ala Marlboro Man.
    And everything goes better with hot biscuits.

  6. I'm about the only one at my house that enjoys leftovers. This looks tasty, tasty!


Your opinion doesn't count, but I'd like to know what it is anyway! Please leave a comment!
