Cooking with Kitchen scraps,
will save money and helps you
get creative. Many times
we get stuck on the same
recipes and meals.

Check around in your kitchen
for some scraps, and use a little
creativity. This comes in handy
when the weather is bad and you
really don’t want to get in the
car and head to the store.

For example, I had some leftover chicken, peanuts,
rice, and Terryaki sauce. So I took some
of these kitchen scraps and turned them into
Peanut – Terryaki Chicken and served it over the leftover rice.

Another idea if you have chicken, romaine lettuce, some parmessan cheese,
a little Italian dressing , you can make Chicken Parmessan salad. It just
takes some creativity. Add some frozen breadsticks, and your adding more
to the meal. If you have leftover pita take the salad and fill it in the
pita for another take. Use you what you have and just get creative.

One night all I had was homemade french bread,
onions, cream, butter and some mozzarella cheese. It was a rainy night
so I made a creamy french onion soup, topped with mozzarella cheese and
turned my french bread into some fresh roasted garlic bread.

Its all about being creative when you cook.
