Leftover Curry Poutine

I know that leftovers aren’t the most glamorous foods to eat, especially if you eat the same meal over and over.  This is a wonderful opportunity to get creative in the kitchen!  I was all out of brown rice, and I needed to cook some potatoes before they went bad, so then the leftover curry… Continue reading Leftover Curry Poutine
