LEFTOVERS




The last chicken I bought for the weekend was a bit heavy at 1.8kg. We never eat that much, the three of us. So half the carcass went into the fridge for future meals. What I did not see happen though when I planned lunch today, was that Victoria already made a couple of sandwich' with the white meat. Healthier she says. Good for her. I prefer the dark chunks of meat anyway. 

I bought some more Ile de Re Potatos (http://theceliachusband.blogspot.fr/2013/05/pomme-de-terre-primeur-de-ile-de-re.html) , roasted them up in plenty of butter and garlic, added all the leftover meats, some Cilantro, salt, pepper and that's it. 15 minutes from start to finish.  Le tasty lunch.
This may sound like a broken record, however I cannot say it often enough. Back in North America, we threw away too much food. Here, where you pay a pretty dollar for some choice meats, one learns quickly to pay more attention to waste.
Believe it or not, Victoria froze the Carcass (sans dark meat) and when she has three of them, she will make a huge pot of chicken stock. 
Besides not wasting money, it makes you feel good for valuing food more.





WHITE MEAT IS FOR GIRLIE MEN

PLENTY OF DARK MEAT FOR ME

EVERYTHING TASTES BETTER WITH BUTTER (AND GARLIC)

SOAKING UP THE BUTTER

ADD THE LEFTOVER MEAT

PLENTY FOR TWO PEOPLE

Food is cheaper in the US but also not as good, actually, mostly tasteless. Come to think of it, that might be the reason why it is so salty and drenched in oil.
