These are just a few of my tips for left over food, I'm sure you must also have your own. Why not share them with other readers and we can all learn to save money.

Save

I cant bear to throw food away so I freeze as much as I can. I love British Bubble and Squeak, its a great use of leftovers.

Souvenirs de la semaine dernier...

That's memories of last week for the rest of us. I keep a container in the freezer with leftover bits of vegetables, vegetable cooking liquids, the odd meat bone or scrap. When it is full, I simmer it with enough water for a soup - add anything needed, like onion, carrot, garlic or a stock cube, and voila, a thick soup. But don't use broccoli because if you do that's all you will taste.

Make Frittatas

I like to use everything from leftover pasta, bread crumbs, and meat in frittatas. Just beat eggs with some seasonings and pour into a buttered skillet; cook until it starts to set, then add the leftovers. Finish the frittata under the broiler, sprinkle with some cheese if you have it, then eat. Yum.

Pasta

I like to cook up some pasta such as penne or ziti the toss in leftover meat, steamed veggies, a can of diced tomatoes, and some grated cheese and bake it.

Veg - Try Bubble and Squeak

The best meal of the week is leftover veg from Sunday lunch fried up into a bubble and squeak. Love it.

Can't use it, freeze it...

I keep a selection of freezer bags and boxes and if I think there is any reason I won't use leftovers I get them into the freezer (if they haven't been previously frozen). Am always happy when in a rush to find something ready made for dinner.
