I found years ago, that I get alot family accolades when I tweak up leftovers.  Then, these leftover tweaks, start becoming first run dinners..  Its funny how a couple happy faces at the table will motivate a mom.  I like to make a little extra meat and peppers and have it in a hot steamed Udi’s Gluten Free bun the next day for lunch.
