We've had a great time with assorted family dinners and thus, have a fridge full of assorted leftovers. This is my 'off' week, when we eat very modestly and with lots of leftovers. It's a Japanese tradition to clean your house for New Year's, so this is the week to flaunt my inner OCD. We purge outgrown toys/clothes/stuff, clear out the computers/email, clean the house from top to bottom and generally, get ready to start New Year's clean and fresh. We also write thank you notes (on paper) and mail them out before the New Year. Again, all to start out the New Year clean and fresh.
So here's what's 'cooking' this week.
Scrambles with leftover spinach salad, ham and a grated cheese.
The ever-popular fried rice with ham, leftover green beans, kim chee and carrots. I use very little shoyu because the ham is so strongly flavored.
Leftover sticky rice, roast beef and Anna's Broccoli Salad. (See below)
Nearly chicken-less enchiladas with the last of the turkey
Sandwiches of some sort, with fresh baked bread.
Eat Well. Be Well. Happy New Year of the Dragon.
