May challenge: double duty dinners

What do you know? It is May, actually May 3rd and I am just getting around to this. The challenge for this month is double duty dinners aka cook once, eat twice aka morphing meals aka glorified leftovers. I like to make one meal out of something, then serve it again later, but change it up to make it seem like a whole new meal. My dad got on this kick awhile ago. He called it "The Rotation". He made a big batch of RR's sloppy joe's (meal#1), then would make lasagna from it (meal#2) and finally stuffed peppers (meal#3). Rachel Ray does have some of these double duty dinners, but another good source is Robin Miller who hosts "Quick Fix Meals" also on the food network.

Can't wait to see what everyone comes up with!
