If your family is anything like mine, by day 3 of leftovers they are like NOPE NOPE NOPE! I try to be versatile and let’s say we’re having chicken, I’ll use the leftovers in quesadillas or a casserole but at the end of the day, even I get tired of the leftovers. Not ham though…I feel like that’s the one leftover that no matter how I recreate it into another dish the family is actually happy! SCORE!
