‘Twas the day after Christmas, and all through the house – were leftovers.
If you’re like me you’re probably happy to eat the exact same meal 5 days straight until every crumb is gone, but if you’re looking to mix things up a bit, try some of these wartime recipes to make sure no leftovers go to waste.
Think you’ve hit the end? Remember, bones can be boiled to make broth or stock, and some vegetables (like celery) can be propagated from a stump. Egg shells can be ground up and put in your garden as fertilizer (especially good for roses), and things you’re sure are trash should be composted if they’re natural, and containers that are recyclable should be rinsed out before being tossed in the bin.
Unfortunately, most wrapping paper is not recyclable, but double check, and if it isn’t, see if there’s some salvageable to wrap smaller gifts with, or to do some crafting. Mend and make do!
