After the party, the only thing left to do is….play with the new toys and Eat up the Leftovers!! My 7 year old and I decided to make Storm Trooper Macaroni (a.k.a. Carbohydrate Casserole).
“Hey, it’s suppertime…um, let’s use this macaroni that’s been in the fridge for a few days, we can whip up a white sauce,”
“ok Mom! I want to help!”
“I’ll show you how to make a roux, son.”
“Let me stir it!”
“Now I’ll slice up this leftover Storm Trooper Cheesball head…”
taste test- “It’s too salty, what else can we add?”
“How about some Greek yoghurt, that should cut the saltiness….and hey, how about those leftover crackers…?”
“Let me crush them up, Mom!”
“Still needs something….” glugs in some salsa, “how about the last of the tortilla chips?”
“I’ll stir it up, Mom, let me taste it now!! It’s great!”
“Yes, I think it’s about right! Ta da everybody!! Storm Trooper Casserole!!”
And it was a success and nicely emptied out the fridge from our Lego Star Wars party! ;)
I couldn’t resist adding the leftover black cream cheese!!
