    Default Dinner was good, but the leftovers...

    ....were fantastic!

    We had roast chicken for Easter dinner. Dear Husband was
    evidently ravenous because he ate both legs, one thigh, and
    half of the breast he had carved. I ate the other half.

    Tonight for dinner I sauteed in a little butter:

    ~ 10 spears of leftover asparagus, cut into 1 inch pieces
    a few thin slices of onion
    about a half of a sweet red pepper, cut into matchsticks
    a jar of pickled artichoke hearts, drained and chopped
    a handful of black olives
    sprinkle of salt and fresh ground pepper

    I set those aside as I shredded the remaining chicken breast
    and thigh, then boiled some linguini.
    I heated the leftover gravy in the saute pan, added the
    chicken, and when it was warm, the rest of the ingredients
    plus about 1/4 cup of half and half (cream) for volume.

    I drained the pasta and put it in a serving dish, poured the
    chicken mixture over it and sprinkled with some freshly
    grated Parmigiano Romano.

    It was one of the tastiest leftover meals I've ever made.

    It certainly doesn't *sound* like leftovers, Gloria! Sounds delicious!

    Sounds yummy. Sometimes the leftover meals are the best

    Sounds really, really nice. I opted out of Easter this year, stayed home,
    did not cook, and had anything I felt like grabbing. The best thing was
    the simplest: angel hair pasta with too much fresh garlic smashed and
    diced, a little butter, a good amount of fresh parmesan cheese.

    Tonight was sirloin tips and soggy rice and broc with cheddar slivers.

    Crap! I thought we were friends! You have stayed in my home! Yeah,
    you called to invite me and I wasn't home. Right.

    Weren't you gadding about on the right coast sniffing the
    cherry blossoms
    and confusing poor legal immigrant drivers? And talking
    monkeys with Blake?

    You can come to Colorado any time. Bring Rob and we'll
    introduce him to
    a new company. Bring Young Child. Depending on the season
    bring
    galoshes or sun block and a parasol. It'll be much more
    fun for me than
    hosting random Swedes, and I'll cook leftovers for ya.
