A 4lb roast for 2 people is going to create a leftover situation.
Here is what I made last night in 30 mins or less with stuff I had on hand.
I cubed up the leftover beef and threw it into a casserole dish.
I dumped the leftover peas from the dinner in.
I quickly cut up one of those pre-washed, pre-peeled half butternut squashes that I had bought and stuck in my fridge a couple of days ago.
I put a couple pats of butter on top. (think pie.)
I poured in the leftover mushroom gravy/pan sauce from the dinner that I had saved.
I opened one of those rolled pie crusts that come in a box and lay it on top of all this.
I wrapped it, made a note with cooking instructions for my husband. Since he is home first tonight, he will be starting dinner. I like to make it as easy as possible to be successful.
Tonight after dinner I will try to post a “beauty shot” as we say in the business ;-
Here it is…….
