Yesterday, I wrote about Leftovers. Today, My Beloved used a pork chop I had barbecued a week or so ago, one of four which was not eaten: because they were 4cms thick. One of us ate one, whereas My Beloved and I ate only most of each of ours. Probably, my doctor would have said, I should not have eaten as much as I did.
So, today, My Beloved provided me with one of my favourite meals: stir fry. She used the chop which was not eaten to provide the basis for the stir fry, adding onion, red peppers, garlic, ginger, celery, carrots and mushrooms, all in a wonderful red spicy sauce.
So, I am using the term ‘Planned Leftovers’, since the unused chop was not, strictly speaking, left over from another meal. It was cooked, not to be eaten with the other three, but with another meal in sight. Whatever!
