The Forgotten Food: Taco Leftovers

Ok – I think I have been doing a little better with my leftovers than I had originally thought. But, here’s meal #3 in my Forgotten Food | A Meal challenge. Again, it’s incredibly easy!

The Forgotten Food: Beef Tacos

Who doesn’t love tacos? But, after I had them for two meals, it was time to change it up. So, I opted to be a little healthier and make a taco salad.


  • I Love Baby Kale | Organic Girls Salad (or your favorite)
  • One Fresh Tomato
  • Leftover Ground Beef with Mexican seasoning
  • Leftover Corn
  • Leftover Black Beans
  • Leftover Tacos – broken into pieces
  • Monterey Jack Cheese – shredded
  • Salsa

I washed and cut up my baby kale mixed salad in my bowl, and then sprinkled the diced tomato on top. I heated up the meat, corn and black beans before sprinkling them on top. Then, I added a few taco pieces, and then topped it off with some cheese and salsa.



The Forgotten Meal: Pizza Night

Last night, all I wanted was a pizza.

Do you guys ever get those cravings? I just wanted some tomatoes and cheese and bread. I had one leftover Italian sausage patty, and crumbling it up on my pizza sounded delicious!

They are also the easiest things to make too!


Pizza crust
– Olive oil
– Diced tomatoes
– Green peppers
– Leftover Italian sausage
– Mozzarella cheese
– Parmesan cheese

Drizzle a little olive oil on your dough, and get to work layering. There was no method to my madness, except to put the cheese as the last layer on top! I just scattered the toppings all over.

Put your masterpiece in the oven for about 10 mins, and you have a meal!


The Forgotten Food | Jim & Nicks Biscuits

Ok – here’s my first recipe to meet this challenge of The Forgotten Food | A Meal. It’s incredibly easy, but it still counts!

The Forgotten Food: Jim & Nicks Biscuits

These biscuits are only one of the best appetizers out there. I can down about 50 of these in a sitting, but for some surprising reason, I had some left over! This morning, I was craving a fried egg sandwich, however, there was absolutely no bread to be found in this apartment. I opened my fridge defeated and settling for milk and cereal when there they were on the top shelf – staring at me. Why not use them? And just like that, a forgotten food meal was born.


  • Two Fresh Eggs
  • Three Leftover Jim & Nicks cheese biscuits
  • Sprinkle of Salt

I threw the biscuits in the microwave and heated up my frying pan. All in all this meal took  about a 7 minutes. And voila – a new way to eat the biscuits AND my belly is full! I don’t get any points for presentation here, as I tried to cook my eggs too quickly and one yolk busted up before it was done. Devastating. BUT, I can assure you that it tasted fantastic.

A little bit of sweet with my eggs was just right.
