    Dinner: Venison meatloaf cups, Yukon gold garlic mashed potatoes, garden peas and a cauliflower garlic bread stick (a new frozen food find - it could've used more garlic).

    Managing leftovers. We had some turkish peppers leftover from our dinner party two nights ago so pan fried them as a side to go with spaghetti aglio olio enriched with finely slivered leftover salt beef we had leftover from Xmas.

    Moroccan Chickpea Soup with a serving of Doritos.

    Best way for me to use up the snacky stuff I bought for guests over Christmas is to incorporate them into my meals. Doritos are something I prefer not to have in the house because I can’t be trusted! 😂 This way I know I’ll be accountable as the big batch of soup *needs* the Dorito accompaniment, which will prevent indiscriminate munching. Mind Games! 🤷‍♀️

    You can make a fat free version of tortilla chips in the microwave. Remove once they start to brown a little as the margin of error between browning and burning is small. Don't fret if they are not crisp when you remove them from the microwave. They turn brittle as they cool.

    For lunch this week! It’s actually a chicken tikka masala recipe I found online years ago, but I eat mostly vegetarian these days so used chickpeas instead.

    Some microwave tostadas I made with stale leftover corn tortillas to dip into store bought guacamole.

    Today's dinner: Spaghetti sauce over spaghetti squash with melted Italian 5 cheese blend and a cauliflower garlic bread stick. (This is probably 2 servings - I'll save 1/2 for tomorrow's lunch).

    Grilled linguiça, rice, black beans w/onions added, collard greens cooked w/bacon & onions. As usual the sausage was made in house at one of the butcher shops I go to.

    I’ve done similar, many times, with leftover corn or flour tortillas. I cut them into eighths and dry fry in a frying pan until lightly browned and crisp.

    Not sure why you suggested it though! I was just using up Doritos (bought for guests) in a way that fits into my calories, not looking for alternatives to Doritos. 🤷‍♀️ The calorie difference is minimal anyway - it’s the tortillas themselves that would tip my calories over not the non existent fat I’d not be using anyway…😂
