This is more or less a rechauffe meal recipe. What is s rechauffe meal you say. You probably already know what it is but not what it's called. I am pretty certain we all create it on a regular basis in our homes
A rechauffe meal is a meal created from left over food usually from the day before into a new and different meal. Call it a revamp.
First time I ever heard that word was in my secondary school home economics class.
So this is basically a tossing together of ingredients to achieve delicious awesomeness ? Cooking is creativity and everyone of us has it in us to do it.
Here are some good reasons to consider rechauffe meals.

3. There is no hard and fast rule. Be creative.
4. Saves money
