what I've learned from Tamar Adler's THE EVERLASTING MEAL COOKBOOK
I also got a lot of inspiration just flipping through this book (at the public library). I had already been using leftover pickle juice, kimchi brine, etc., but Adler encouraged me to take it to the next level. Most recently, I combined my kids’ sandwich crusts, leftover breakfast cereal, and some snack crumbs into a bread-pudding concoction.
If I have leftover rice, there's an 80% chance I'm having fried rice for breakfast the next day (need to investigate cheetoh fried rice??)
And if leftover pie transforming into breakfast counts - that’s my answer!
Wowow! Love this series and what a great review! Just ordered on your rec. Gotta admit it was the reference to the snack chapter that did me in. I read and loved Adler’s first book when it came out, and even though I was the kind of 24 or 25 year old who dutifully packed my lunch every day and shopped at the farmers market, its preciousness haunted me a little and I felt waves of guilt when I didn’t turn carrot tops into chimmichurri or whatever... guess what, I just did that last week and now the chimmuchirri is browning in the fridge bc I still don’t like to eat carrot tops!! Lol. Guess what I’m saying is, my vision of her kitchen did NOT include Cheetos and Oreos. And now that it does, I can see how inviting this book is, and am stoked to have it on hand! x
