Holiday Left-Over Quick & Easy Fix

There’s a thin line between enjoying and enduring when it comes to “getting rid” of your holiday leftovers, especially when you are already on day 10 of the new year.

I swear we have already been overly generous in giving out food to neighbors, but for some reasons, there are still plenty of holiday food in the ref. Definitely not a problem.

On the bright side it means WE ARE OBVIOUSLY BLESSED the only downside I could think of is the extra (large) pounds I am getting because of all these (un)necessary indulgence.

Some of the blessings I got as well from last year were actually cooking ingredients and spices which is just perfect especially for moms like me who simply love to cook (and eat). I will be mentioning the brand names of those ingredients, as a way of saying thank you.

Below are a the recipes that I came up with to solve our leftover dilemmalicious!
