Tips on Tuesday

Sandra, from Diary of a SAHM has started a new Tuesday feature. It's called Tips on Tuesday. Here is what she says about it:
"If you want to join in, you can and I would love it too, you can post a tip about anything, cooking, cleaning, homemaking, kids, marriage, travel....whatever you wish."

I have a tip that I have probably shared before, but it works out really well for our family, so I'm sharing it again. When I make a roast dinner, I buy a large enough roast to ensure that I have leftovers. I then shred the leftover roast and put it in a 9x9 pan. I pour some leftover gravy over it and then sprinkle on some seasoned salt. I put whatever leftover veggies we have on that, seal it tightly with foil and freeze it. When I am going to use it, I thaw it and put a package of Bob Evans ready made mashed potatoes over everything. I cook it at 350 degrees for about 30 - 40 minutes. It tastes really good and doesn't feel like you are eating leftovers, plus you have a quick meal when you need one!
Remember to visit Sandra to see what other tips she has!

Sandra said...

Oh that is such a good tip Mari, usually I will do just use the leftover roast for sandwiches and while that's good it does get boring after a while LOL

Mari,

That is a great tip and one that I hadn't read on your posts before. Thanks for sharing.

Blessings,
Mary

Hey Mari, that's a great tip! thanks! Also I noticed Jen's button over on the side of your blog. I didn't think you could do that, but maybe I'll have to try add it!

I would love to do this. I even have many to share. When I decided I would try blogging I thought that a Tip of the Day would be interesting. Thank you I can't wait to get started....k

I made a roast yesterday that I was planning on doing that with. Apparently, my family is eating more b/c there wasn't any roast left.

I always make extra and then we have roast beef sandwiches the next day, but this would be a nice change. Great tip, Mari!
