Have you ever watched that show on the Food Network called "Chopped"?
Each chef gets a mystery basket and then has to make an appetizer, entrée or dessert in an allotted period of time with the ingredients found in the basket...
and most of the time it is an oddball assortment of stuff.
That's sort of how I feel when I open the refrigerator to find bits of leftovers that I want to turn into a meal. And by using up the leftovers, it helps to save $$$.
So today I opened the refrig and I found leftover carrot and cucumber salad, fake crabmeat (you know, that stuff made out of pollock that is made to look like crab) and I also had some multigrain ciabatta rolls from Sam's place... otherwise known as the Walmart Neighborhood Market.
I split the rolls and toasted them in the toaster.
Smeared some mayo on the insides of the rolls and then layered the carrot and cucmber salad, Bibb lettuce, and fake crab.
I poured a glass of one of those juice drinks that is made up of a combination of fruits and veggies and topped it off with a crazy straw that my grandbabies like to use when they come over.
So there you have it.
That's my "chopped" entry for today!
