I have this bad habit of buying packets of sliced meats and not using all the meat up. I get one or two sandwiches out of it and then the meat sits in the drawer until it's past its expiry and I either throw it out or (if it's on the expiry date) feed it to the cats.
I just forget about the meat as my usual lunch is comprised of leftover supper...
Today I realised I had a lot of sliced turkey in the fridge...and the best-by date is a couple of days away. A quick sandwich for tomorrow's lunch and then I chopped up the rest, added some sauteed mushrooms, onions, garlic and tomatoes and poured it over some leftover noodles.
It wasn't half bad.
