A few years ago my MIL got us this for Christmas:
It's this cool pottery thing that lets you cook whole chicken in the oven. You put liquid in the little cup (apple juice, chicken broth, even water) and put it in the oven for a couple hours. I've really been using this lately. The chicken is so moist you would not even believe it. Well, since our family is small, we don't quite finish the chicken. I really hate leftovers, and never really eat them. But this chicken was so good, I didn't want it to go to waste. I decided to be creative with leftovers for once. I had half a bag of spaghetti noodles, the chicken, and leftover cooked vegetables (I NEVER keep veggies so I was glad for once I did) I mixed in some alfredo sauce with the chicken and veggies and cooked the noodles. Voila a meal in about ten minutes that was super yummy:
It doesn't look amazing, but trust me it tasted good. We were left with empty plates and full bellies:

What creative things have you done with leftovers?

Bravo! Using things up so they don't go to waste is my specialty :)
