Use it up week

This week  the Italian GP was on, so I bought a pack of 6 rolls so hubby could have a burger whilst watching the qually on Saturday & the  race on Sunday,
We had a lot of leftovers from the takeaway on Friday & I'd bought a small piece of gammon last time I went to Aldi & once cooked sliced it thinly and sandwiches for hubby's packups & there were a few slices left.
So Saturday  we had leftover takeaway & burgers in buns.
Sunday we had cooked breakfast & the burgers in buns
Monday we had gammon, egg, chips & beans using some of the leftover gammon
Tuesday we had sausage casserole, using the sausages left from Sunday breakfast & the beans left from Monday.
Tonight we had carbonara using up the mushrooms left from Sunday breakfast, the last few scraps of gammon & I turned the leftover rolls into garlic bread, there was enough to feed us, plus my son who turned up unexpectedly & there is still a portion for lunch tomorrow.
So far every meal seems to have part of a previous meal included.
Now I'm going to look for a chutney recipe as I've just picked another 3 kilos of tomatoes & I want a change from soup.

From Margie in Toronto - must be the week for it - made some soup and shepherd's pie on the weekend along with cooking some bacon, some mushrooms and carmelizing some onions - I've been mixing it up all week with bits and pieces at each meal along with some eggs and tomatoes. Still have some onions and mushrooms left that I'm going to add to a tomato sauce tomorrow night and a bit of bacon for a bacon & tomato sandwich for breakfast tomorrow.

Margie, I always think those sort of meals taste the best.

Hester, how do you do your gammon? Do you boil it? Thanks Icey x

Icey, it depends on whether I have anything else to put in the oven, if I have then I roast it, if not I cook it in the slowcooker.
