I have a bad habit of making way more food than Domenic and I need and having to throw away things that go bad. I am trying to be better about coming up with creative leftover ideas rather than just throwing food in the trash.
Here is a fun one that I came up with on a whim one morning. I made smoothies for breakfast, but like usual, I had more than either of us wanted to drink. I poured the left over smoothie into a mini ice cub tray (here is the tray that I used).
I am really happy with the way that they turned out. These will be great for Oliver when he starts teething and eating food. I could even freeze applesauce or pureed fruits and give them to him to gnaw on or play with. Because they are milk based, they break apart like ice cream or popsicles rather than being hard on your teeth! A smoothie made with juice or ice cubes would be more crystalized.
What do you do to recycle leftovers?
