Leftover Magic!

Last night we had Immigration Night at First Shift of Kids’ school: students show their presentations on different countries, they dress up as immigrants and bring an “ethnic dish” to share, thus creating an international buffet.  Our family’s countries were China and Ireland, so we just brought soda bread and a bag of White Rabbit.  We sampled a bit of everything from shrimp lo mein to bean flautas to marzipan covered in chocolate, but we still came home hungry.  We ended up picking up Chinese food but having lots of leftovers.  Tonight’s dinner, then, will be leftover vegetable lo mein bulked up with some leftover brown rice, shredded carrots, and some seitan cutlets from the freezer. 

Not exactly a recipe, but at least I’m sticking to my “blog the whole meatless Lent” thing.
