Pocket tacos

Facebook is great for
getting ideas for what to cook for
supper.  There are always drool-worthy 
photos showing up that just really 
make me hungry.
 I saw this recipe pop up on
a friend's page and decided...Yep!
That is what's for dinner

The recipe is pretty dang simple.  
It would be great with leftover taco
meat.  I didn't have any leftover so
I had to make some fresh, but it
still wasn't too bad.

Pocket Tacos

1 can large biscuits
1 can refried beans
Taco meat
(my taco meat was one pound
of meat with one packet of seasoning)
about 1-2 cups grated cheddar

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.  Spray a cookie sheet with non stick spray to put the pockets on.  Press one biscuit into about a 6" circle. Spread a thin layer of beans onto the biscuit, about one tablespoon.  Top with a nice heaping spoon of cheese and then meat. Fold the biscuit dough over the toppings and press the edges with a fork.  Poke a few holes in the top with the fork and place on the cookie sheet.  Repeat for all biscuits.  The recipe I used said bake for 10-15 minutes, but mine were not browning until about 20, so just use your judgement.  I served these with diced tomatoes and sour cream.  You can top with extra cheese, lettuce, salsa...or whatever is your fave topping!  These are yummy!

Don't waste calories on crappy food!  ha!

Ahhh....what the crap to do with leftovers...

The food left from the night
before, after everyone got full.

I hate to waste.  I just don't want
to throw something out that didn't
get eaten.  I feel like I should have
managed better and not made so much
food in the first place if
I have to throw something out.

I make a lunch plate for 
my guy on the days he works, so 
the leftovers actually work out well. 
But they are really better if you can
change them up and make them
into a different dish to break the monotony.

The dish I was trying to enhance on this
particular occasion was...spaghetti.
It is pretty yummy that first time, but 
can always stand a little attention
when it comes time for leftovers.

I just pressed the leftover spaghetti
into a casserole dish like so...

And topped it with plenty of mozzarella
to cover it well.  Then added
pepperonis to the top of the cheese.

Popped it in the oven at 350 for 
about 20 minutes.
Serve it with some garlic toast. 
mmmm.  :)
