In this post last Sunday, I mentioned there was a Part 2 to come. And I'm sorry it's been a week, but Part 2 is FINALLY here! I hope you're not disappointed because I honestly think it was worth the wait!
When I made the Pesto Chicken, Rice and Grilled Veggies I intentionally make much more than I'd be eating that night because I knew I'd be able to use them in meals the next few day. Meals, yes - I said meals as in using one meal's cooking for multiple other meals! I learned to do this awhile ago and it's GENIUS if done right!!
Everything cooked Sunday Night
So what did I do with the leftover deliciousness? I made three different things actually, but unfortunately only have pictures of two of them! :( Have no fear - the unpictured rice bowl was still amazing and I would have one right now if I could.
For lunch Monday, I took leftovers.
And made a chicken, rice, grilled veggies, hummus and sprouts
pita sandwich that was so tasty.
A co-worker even asked where I'd purchased it!
Tuesday night I made a salad with chicken, rice, grilled veggies, sprouts and a little light ranch dressing.
All the different meals were amazing and different enough so I didn't feel like I kept eating the
EXACT SAME THING!
I'll try to share more meals I make like this as I do it. It makes cooking delicious homemade food SO much easier and even quite enjoyable to some extent.
