A day comes along every now and then when you look in your fridge and ask yourself “what am I supposed to do with this?” On these days, dinner can feel like a chore, but it’s a great excuse to raid your fridge and test your kitchen improv skills.
Keeping good staples in your fridge will make these days less painful. There are a few ingredients that are always in my pantry, fridge or freezer: tomatoes, eggs, mustard, chicken broth, and bacon. Adding one of these ingredients to a dish of leftovers almost always boosts the dish. Putting them together gives you almost all the fixings for a Cobb salad, my favorite hearty salad. Chopped into tiny pieces and tucked into a soft flour wrap, these leftovers make a fresh and tasty lunch.
