Don’t be square, circle around to an easy, colorful dish even with leftovers.Appetizers / May 8, 2015
I just returned from a long business trip, so you can imagine just how empty my fridge and pantry had become in my absence. Then when I threw out all the leftovers that my husband didn’t eat — because he went out with his friends almost every night — it was positively impoverished looking. (Ron said he missed me, but I wonder?) So when it was time for dinner the first night in my kitchen, I had to do some creative thinking. The resulting success was a combination of some leftovers I was able to keep, and some warmed up hamburgers simply cut into cubes to look dressier.
After some quick thinking, I came up with this meal: Cheesy Stuffed Mini Peppers with Latin Cubed Burgers and a Fig Ginger Port Wine Reduction. Seriously, it’s rice, cheese, peppers, burgers, dried fruit and grape juice. Hello! You can impress with the right title!
