    Default Nice Saves Food Thread (spinoff from wasted food) 7/6-7/12

    So we have a thread for wasted food accountability. Well how about those "nice saves" we've done. Here's mine so far this week.

    Some cooked chicken that was about to go bad turned into chicken and dumplings.

    Two bell peppers that were starting to get less than crispy turned into a pork stir fry for dinner last night.

    Some soggy celery in my fridge got diced and and put in the freezer for a future recipe, thanks to advice from Domestic Gal!

    How about you guys?

    turned left over fried chicken, into chicken salad

    turned left over mashed potatoes, into potato pancakes

    leftover frozen mixed fruit -- pureed and made into Popsicles

    leftover rigatoni -- pureed and frozen for soup base later

    left over cake -- became a trifle
