I love a good “two-fer” meal—you use part of it one night and repurpose it a bit for another meal the next day. On Wednesday night, I tried out a non-traditional pesto that we all really liked.
I can’t make completely traditional pestos since Berkeley is allergic to pine nuts (a fun thing we discovered when she started violently puking at Aunt Meredith’s wedding dinner last summer) but we all loved this variation. My little Emery had two servings!
The next day, I made some of our favorite mac & cheese for lunch and after preparing it according to the box directions, I mixed in a couple very large scoops of the leftover pesto. It was delicious!
Get creative in your kitchen. What can YOU use for a two-fer?
