Sibling See, Sibling Do: Siblings Can Influence College Footsteps
Growing up we knew not to even think about asking our mama what she had planned for dinner on Monday. Without fail it would be Sunday dinner leftovers. As a result I think this may be the reason why I have a dislike for leftovers. My taste buds have a strong preference for food served piping hot, fresh out of pots. This does not mean that I do not understand the power in leftovers. Leftovers in busy mama language means, Mama (or daddy) has the night off from cooking (waste not, want not is also something I consider too). Therefore I have never voiced my dislike for leftovers in front of the kiddos. I can’t have them turning down end of the week dinners that may be a hodgepodge of plastic containers with turkey dogs from Wednesday, macaroni and cheese from Sunday and string beans from Thursday. There are those time however when I luck up and not only do the kiddoss like the leftovers but I do too. This usually happens when I have cooked a little extra grilled chicken. Normally I save grilled chicken for a salad. But this week I used the extra grilled chicken I had from dinner to make sliders. The kiddos took some for their lunch (the hubby and I did too) and they also gobbled them down at soccer practice. Sweet!

Grill or griddle chicken.
Once chicken is done cut water or dinner rolls in half and spread with butter (spreading with butter is totally optional, but oh so tasty!).
