Leftovers Monday: pepper, tomato, lettuce and chicken


July's Tomato Haul

Hi, its time for another idea on using up what is in your fridge. Today I had a  pepper, some not very firm tomatoes, some lettuce, an onion and half a chicken.
So I went to my store and took out some tortilla wraps. I cut and fried the onion and peppers in strips and added the tomatoes, some seasoning and the shredded the chicken. I Spread some sun-dried tomato paste n the wraps and then my stir fry. These were ready to heat through when I wanted them.I refreshed the lettuce in ice water for later and I served this with some grated carrots.
I boiled the chicken bone in some water to which I added a bit of onion, a chunk of carrot, a garlic clove a tomato, a bay leaf and let it boil for 1 hour. I strained it and let it cool and removed the fat. This makes a delicious soup, just add a chicken stock cube, a little dry wine if you have it . It can be had just like this or with some added vegetables. Just perfect for these wet days.
Tip: To remove fat from anything either: let it cool in the fridge and when it is set scoop it off. Or use the crusts of bread to soak it up or several reams of kitchen towel.
