Re: New meals out of leftovers
Make taco's one night with plenty of meat then make nacho's the next night or use it for a taco salad. You can also make hot dishes with taco meat like layering chips, meat, salsa, cheese, etc... bake it then top with sour cream and lettuce and tomatoes.
As a rule of thumb, something I learned at a Campground when I worked in the kitchen. Don't use the leftover whatever for the next night. Wait at least a night so the family doesn't get tired of using the same kind of meat from the night before. If you skip just one night most people don't notice at all.
