Wasteful Wednesday: July 27

It is a miracle. I have no food waste to share with you today! And it is not for a lack of trying. I have made every meal at home all week, so this is amazing. So instead of staring at my leftovers that have seen better days, I thought I would share some great ways to use up some leftovers.

Money Ning shares 15 great ways to use up leftovers.

The Simple Dollar shares awesome ways to transform leftovers.

A Dusty Frame gives advice on 55 ways to use up everything in our kitchen!

The Kitchn lets us know 8 ways to use leftover Chicken.

How do you use up leftovers?


  1. I had leftover Chicken and potatoes (a 9 x 13 pan) so tonight I deboned it added carrots and made a cream sauce and topped it with biscuit batter... Chicken pot pie for 8! Ta da! Cost me the 2 bags of carrots and the biquicky mix.

  2. mmmm, chicken a biscuits tammy!!! YUM. i always make leftovers. you should see how many meals i get out of one little small rotisserie chicken. i am always transforming meal number 1 into meal number 2. Glad i'm not the only one. I do really hate to throw any food away. Too many people go hungry. Makes me wince to throw food away, so leftovers are the answer in this house. tomorrow, dh is having a leftover pork roast sandwich for lunch.

  3. Hooray for you!
    I had to throw away a small piece of cheese this week, tho it pained me to do it, it was more mold and fuzz than not. bleh.

    I made fajitas this evening for dinner, using frozen red bell pepper strips from last fall, a fresh pepper, onions and 2 banana peppers from the garden. I had 2 small yellow squash leftover from Monday's dinner so I slices into strips and threw them in too. Now I have leftover fajita filling to figure out how to use up. Other than putting it on a pizza, I am stumped!

Barn wood reindeer

I was  recently invited to an ornament exchange. We were instructed to create 12 of the same ornaments. We then wrapped one of the ornaments and put the other 11 in a box. We passed around the wrapped ornaments and opened them, sort of like a white elephant exchange. That way we all got to oogle and google  each others ornaments.

I made reclaimed barn wood reindeer. I think they turned out super cute. What do you think? Anyone want a tutorial?

The winds of Change...

There came a time in our lives when our planning just didn’t make the cut. We recently moved in with family due to Chevy Man injuring his foot. I know a lot of you will understand that when you live paycheck to paycheck there just isn’t enough money to put aside for a rainy day. Now I am learning to pinch my pennies even harder than I did before. Chevy Man was in an accident on September 24th with a friend and injured his foot. The first doctors told us he broke his ankle and put him into a cast and on crutches for 8 weeks, with possible surgery. I was relieved that he wasn’t hurt more than he was, but what were we gonna do for 8 weeks!?!I called my Grandma and asked if it was alright if we stayed with her for a while. We were planning on moving to this area anyways at the end of the year so that just moved us faster and in a little less desirable situation than we would have liked. But I am so very thankful for my family. They are amazing.I packed all of our belongings into a 10x10 s…

[Guest Post] Summertime Blues

Today’s post is a part of the 20 something blogger blog swap. This post is written by Kelly over at Insert Clever Title here. Which by the way, why didn’t I think of that title?! It’s awesome, Kelly! She has a great blog and I am totally hooked. I have been reading it all day. She has a great writing style and outlook on life. I’m very excited to have her as my swap partner. This is the first every guest post here at Frugal Farmhouse, so I’m a little, ok a lot excited! Also when you check out her blog, you get to check out my post on saving money in the summer.

Something about summer has lost a bit of its magic for me. I don't know if it was the summer that I graduated from college, and was suddenly, jarringly thrown into the Real World, or if was something that had been sneaking up on me for years before that.Summer vacation doesn't exist for me anymore.It makes me both sad and, admittedly, a little bitter, to lose that sense of freedom. My reward for making it through all tho…
