According to the Merriam-Webster Dictionary “leftover” is a noun originated in 1891 referring to “something that remains unused or unconsumed”, especially “leftover food served at a later meal”. Remember the tuna fish I received as a present and prepared on the grill a few weeks ago? If not, take a look here. If you do, then let me add that we had quite a few leftovers, which obviously found their way into the freezer.
The Wikipedia affirms that “new dishes made from leftovers are quite common in world cuisine” and, let me assure you, they are more than correct. Well, those tuna leftovers were found by my wife yesterday, and hence a new dish was offered for us at lunchtime.
First, she boiled some sliced potatoes (an egg was also boiled during the process). Second, onions and yellow bell peppers were sauté in olive oil, to which the tuna leftovers were added. The potatoes were then disposed at the bottom of a ceramic platter and the tuna, onions and bell peppers layered at the top. An extra shot of olive oil was added and the dish placed in the oven for a couple of minutes. Right before serving the egg was sliced and put at the top of the plate.
The result was rather simple, but quite tasty. And she proved once again she cares about my money. Thanks hun.
