I started this blog so my daughters could find all of our family favourite recipes in one place. It has actually grown into more than just the family favourites but also other recipes we've tried out in our kitchen. I don't like to fill up the post with alot of chatter. Sometimes there's a little story to tell, but usually I like to get right to the point. So this is for them, but hope you find some recipes that you like as well. I'll be sharing a lot of recipes, and along the way you'll find some crafty things and maybe some helpful hints too!

Beef Stroganoff from Leftovers

Got leftovers?

This dish is a make-over made almost entirely from leftovers.
And you don't need sour cream or canned soup to make it.

3/4 lb cooked roast beef, cut in strips
3/4 lb cooked linguini
a few cooked pieces of broccoli 
1 onion, sliced
1 tbsp olive oil

Sauce:
2 tbsps butter or marg
2 tbsps flour
1/4 tsp salt
1  1/4 - 1  1/2 cups milk
1/2 cup cream cheese (regular or cheddar flavour)
pepper to taste

Get a large pan and brown the sliced onion in olive oil, then toss in the roast beef and broccoli. Cover to keep warm.

In a small saucepan melt the butter and add the flour and salt. Whisk in the milk and cook until thickened. Start with 1 1/4 cup milk, only adding the extra 1/4 cup if you want your sauce thinner. Stir in chunks of cream cheese and warm until melted. Sprinkle pepper to taste.

Pour the sauce into the roast beef and stir together.

Reheat the linguini in the microwave and toss with a little butter. Put some on each plate and top with warm and creamy beef stroganoff.

Serves 2
