Karl’s Leftover Turkey Fajita Tacos

After Thanksgiving you usually have the pleasant problem of what you are going to do with the leftovers.  Usually, I make mulligatawny. This year Jan asked for turkey tacos.

Karl’s Leftovers: Karl’s Ham and Baby Bok Choi Stir Fry

I made ham steak the other day and, after the meal, I had half a pound of ham left. By itself it was not enough to feed three people, but with some creativity I could make a meal of it. Stretch the meat with some vegetables—add an interesting sauce and some rice—and you have something new and different.

Karl’s Leftovers: Venezuelan Pernil Summer Rolls (Pulled Pork)

Sunday, we had Venezuelan pernil arepas and South American slaw for dinner.  The question is what do I do with the leftover pork, cabbage salad, and tomato slices for a weekday meal? If I was just by myself, I would go for mixing the meat and tomatoes into a savory rice dish—something that Jan would instantly describe as “too heavy!”

Karl’s Leftovers: Salmon Salad with Raspberry Radish Slaw

This Sunday we had a complex soup, cioppino,  that would take up most of my attention. I did not want to have just a plain greens salad, but it needed to be simple. Fortunately, yesterday was Jan and my 33rd anniversary and I had made salmon wraps for dinner.

Karl’s Leftovers: Salmon Cake

When I make my Sunday meals, I usually make enough for one to three leftover meals. Sometimes this means just the same meal again. Other times I use whatever is left over as the basis for a new dish.

Karl’s Japanese Salmon Rice

Another of my leftovers lunch recipes for one. I had about an ounce of teriyaki salmon left over from the night before, as well as some cold Japanese rice. This is a common Japanese leftovers dish, but I did not look any of them up. I just threw together what seemed reasonable to me. To go with my rice, I decided to make some teriyaki chicken wings and I threw in some Japanese pickled cucumber as my salad.

Jan’s Charlie B’s

This is a family recipe from Jan’s father. I do not know where the name comes from (Charlie Browns?), but it is an excellent breakfast. It is, however, one that you generally have to plan ahead for.
