With everyone on lockdown and the Covid numbers increasing the way they are, everyone is trying to stay home and make the most of what they already have. People are learning the importance of not wasting food and stretching an ingredient to make more than one thing.
But however judiciously we try and cook there are always leftovers right? A lot of people are at a complete loose end about what to cook and what they can do with the food lying in their fridge.
The first thing that runs through my mind is how could I finish all these veggies and still have something fun to plate up? We asked people what they did with leftovers and we got some terrific ideas. My son decided to step in and help me when I decided to put our leftovers to good use. if your kids are interested in cooking then we have a fantastic option for you

Do you know what I do with leftover hard bread? I cut them into bite-sized pieces, drizzle them with olive oil, put some garlic powder, salt and Italian seasoning and bake them into crisp croutons @ 175° C for 15 minutes. Put them in an airtight container and keep in the fridge. These don’t go stale and stay good as new for up to a month. You can put croutons in soup, over salad or just as a munchie when hunger strikes.
