CORD for dinner!

We like to keep it simple 'round here on Sunday evenings.  After a good-sized lunchtime meal of pot roast or something similar in the slow cooker, what do we enjoy for Sunday dinner?  CORD! 

Or to put it more simply ~ Clean Out the Refrigerator Dinner.  I am not the originator of this brilliant acronym; but my children are so much more excited about CORD than they are when "leftovers" are announced.  Don't ask me why, but there is something about the silliness of spelling it out that makes them giggle and gets them excited to see what will end up on their plates.

Tonight's featured plate of CORD?  Peanuts, apple slices, cherry tomatoes, ants on a log (peanut butter in a celery stick with raisins on top) and tortilla pinwheels (cream cheese spread on a whole wheat tortilla, topped with spinach, roast turkey and pepper jack cheese). 

This gives me the opportunity to get the leftovers out and tidy the fridge for the upcoming week, and the kids a chance to be surprised on their plates.  A perfect match in my book.

Enjoy today,
