My cookbook, Mealtime Magic, features intentional planning of leftovers to create completely new meals. It's a new trend in American cooking (at least I'm hoping to make it a trend) to save time and money. Who wouldn't want more of those?
Tonight, I will present information about my cookbook, Mealtime Magic, to the South Nodaway Fitness Club. Sue Nothstine, a friend from my writers group, had asked me and she asked author and publisher Lee Jackson, too. Lee will give information about apples and discuss her new apple cookbook for kids, Healthy to the Core! After the presentation, attendees will eat dinner. Tonight's main dish is pork chops. So what do you do with leftover pork chops? Pork Fried Rice and Hot and Sour Soup are perfect dishes to make with leftover pork chops. Why? You only need one pork chop cut into thin strips for either of these dishes. Plus, the pork pairs well with these flavorful Asian dishes. See these two recipes, following. And if you have any questions about how to create new meals from leftovers, please leave a comment and ask me. Enjoy!
