Leftovers: How do I hate thee?
We are innundated by leftovers here. I really hate leftovers. They're boring and never taste as good. Who wants to eat the same thing twice? Not me. And yet, right now I really have to use some of the leftovers we have from my 5 year old's family and kid party. Here's why:

Last night I had kickboxing, so dinner had to be ready fast when I got home.

Pizza with (leftover) marinara sauce, roasted peppers, black olives, fresh mozzarella, and turkey pepperoni. It is what it is.
