Hi - this is a bad title, but I couldn't think of what else to call it. I am a cooking/shopping/budget challenged tPFer. I wanted to collect a list of main dishes followed by secondary meals you can make from the same main ingredients, so that I quit wasting so much food. For example here are two that I do: Main Ingredients: Chicken breast fillets, lemon, romaine lettuce. Meal 1: Chicken Picata made with thin sliced chicken filets. I usually serve this with a steamed broccoli drizzled with lemon and salad. Meal 2: Chicken Pitas - slice the leftover uncooked chicken filets into strips and marinate in olive oil, lemon and oregano. Saute them then serve wrapped in warm pita bread with feta cheese and chopped romaine lettuce. Main Ingredients: Salmon fillet Meal 1: Baked or grilled salmon, wild rice, salad. Meal 2: Take the leftover salmon, chunk it, mix with cooked linguine, pesto, and toasted pine nuts. Being low on creativity, this is about all I could come up with. If you do something like this, could you please share your ideas?
