Tip of the Week - Make the most of leftovers
Placeholder Image

Make Christmas meals and treats go even further with some frugal and fabulous recipes designed to make the most out your holiday leftovers!

Any ham left? How does ham and swiss quiche or cheddar-ham pasta sound? If you have turkey, think about turkey curry and good old turkey sammies. If you're at a loss for how to make these dishes, use Google to help you or stop by our fabulous public library for a cookbook or two.

Don't forget to save all your candy canes to use as stirrers for your tea and hot cocoa this winter. Leftover sweets? Freeze them so you can enjoy them in the next couple of months.

A good rule of thumb about leftover anything is to think about it before you toss it. You might be able to make something spectacular!
