cooking from scraps
I was rather adventurous/economic this weekend with cooking. I had to attend a family function and bring something on Saturday. I made a basic chocolate chip cookie recipe using crushed leftover candy (Halloween, Christmas, and Valentine's day). I also made Mac & cheese. I made two boxes of generic mac and cheese, grated some sharp cheddar cheese I had in the fridge (moldy edges removed, of course) and a topping of butter and bread crumbs. Tonight I used leftover french fries, onion, pasta, cheese, a tomato, and some eggs and made a fritatta. Edit for clarity.
