I’m amazed by how many meals I’ve been able to get out of the freezer, and there still seems to be so much left.

The Grilled Peaches and Pork we tried last week was a hit with the family.  Everyone, even the littles, gave it a thumbs up.  I modified the recipe some.  Instead of arugula, I made a side salad and some jasmine rice.  We are definitely going to be repeating this recipe.  It was quick, easy, and flavorful.  If you saw the Facebook posts, you’ll know that we ended up grilling this inside of the Foreman grill rather than outside.  It still turned out great.  I love it when a recipe can be flexible.

I also put together a dish of leftovers instead of serving them individually.  My thoughts are that if you have leftovers to eat, why not make them appealing?

The leftovers I had were:

  1. mashed potatoes
  2. chili
  3. nacho cheese dip

The result was very reminiscent of shepherd’s pie.  I loved how all the flavors worked well together and came out tasting anything but bland.  The chili was Chipotle-Chocolate Chili, the nacho dip had salsa and chicken in it, and the mashed potatoes had butter and sour creme.  Hey, I didn’t say this was low calorie, just that it had lots of flavor.
