What would you call it? :) E pluribus unum means "One out of many." My idea is "Out of one, many!" Start with one meal that cascades to several other dishes you make from the same ingredients. Here's an example:
At the beginning of the week, I made New England Boiled dinner--boiled corned beef (this time in Guinness and water!), added potatoes, turnip, carrots, onions at the end. That was the first meal.
From the N.E. boiled dinner, I reserved the very tasty stock and made reuben soup with the leftover corned beef.
From the reuben soup, I had a leftover cup of Guinness that I didn't feel like drinking, so I made an Irish car bomb cake.
I top my reuben soup with rye toast, sprinkled with cheese, so I had a loaf of rye on hand and made an egg salad (with Duke's mayo that I learned about on CH, I might add!) sandwich for lunch yesterday.
What other "Out of one, many!" dishes have you made that inspired a week's worth of food...or at least other dishes than what you started with?
