Right up front I'm admitting that I'm researching an article. So anyone who doesn't want to contribute to my yacht-purchasing savings plan should definitely not help me out here. I'm looking for ideas - not recipes (unless you're really generous) just ideas for something where you make one thing, say a roast chicken, and then make something entirely else with the leftovers.
For example, roast beef and then shepherds pie. Or grilled chicken breasts and then grilled chicken burritos. That kind of thing. Family-friendly. And by that I do not mean stupid, but just simple enough for busy parental units to cook with a screaming toddler clinging to a knee.
