Turkey Meatball Baguette

When it comes to my cooking ability, I can safely say that my mother takes most of the credit for providing that solid foundation of knowledge but she also taught me to appreciate the power of leftovers.

With time seemingly at a premium these days, it makes sense to actually plan to have leftovers - the cost to produce a larger meal, both in physical labour and monetary value is negligible.

In my household, when it comes to meals, I always have one eye on tomorrow. A couple of weeks ago, I wrote about the curry leftovers and today I have another use for those turkey meatballs I made.

There's two obvious ways to extend their life - make more to begin with or alter your meatball to pasta ratio. What I make with those extra meatballs and their wonderfully rich sauce is an utterly satisfying lunchtime offering - warm silverbeet and turkey meatball baguette.

    Chicken Curry Pies

    I don't know why it is but Sunday nights just seem the perfect time for a comforting curry. Whether it's chicken or beef, the flavour experience far outweighs the physical effort of making it. Best of all it's the type of dish you can easily arrange to make more than you need because leftover curry is even tastier.

    But this post isn't about making the curry - it's about what you do with your leftover curry and rice.

    Rhubarb Crumble Slice

    My last bunch of rhubarb was quite enormous and while some of it went to make the Rhubarb and Apple Chutney, more than half of it lay unused.

    Now it would have been very simple to make some sort of rhubarb crumble but there's a recipe I've been meaning to try out - this jammy oaty biscuit. I've played around with it a little - made my own rhubarb jam using the same technique found in the chutney and upped the crumble nature of the dish to create this Rhubarb Crumble Slice - consider it as a crumble you can hold in your hand!
