Leftover Remix

in All Posts

We had a playful morning in the Boyle household.


Maggie won.  She always wins!  But she tends to fight dirty (case in point). 


Henry supervised.  I canÒ€ℒt wait until he can really watch the dogs play with each other and laugh at them. 


So, when our friends Sara and Kevin brought over all the trimmings for tempeh tacos for one of our baby meals, I was most excited about the massive quantity of black bean and corn salad. I knew it would remix well into leftovers.


I instantly had visions of casseroles, quiches, and omelets swimming in my head!

    Henry is such a cutie! I have a five month old daughter and an Australian Shepherd and she is just starting to love watching the dog. He is such a spaz and her eyes just get big when she see’s him! It is SO cute!!! Also, when we call him by his name, Quincy, she looks right at him! I can’t wait until they can play together!

    That corn/black bean dish looks great! I bet it tasted awesome in your eggs!

    • Janae @ Bring-Joy June 27, 2012, 9:32 am

      I’ve wanted a dog for my kids for so long, I think I’m close to breaking down & getting one after all this talk about babies/kids bonding with the family dog! So cute how they really do connect.

  • Jordan @ Bake Write Sleep June 27, 2012, 9:16 am

    Thanks for including the omelet tutorial… I can’t make one pretty to save my life. But I can make a heck of a quiche. I got pretty excited when I saw the word in the post, but actually, I’m glad you went the omelet route =]

  • Katie @ Peace Love and Oats June 27, 2012, 9:16 am

    I haven’t had an omelet in ages, that one looks delicious!

  • Presley (@runpretty) June 27, 2012, 9:17 am

    Ah… you are really making me hope people come feed us. (Is that bad?!) I’ll be induced in the morning! Maybe when I get home, I’ll say that a ticket in to the house costs a casserole or two?

  • Angela @ Eat Spin Run Repeat June 27, 2012, 9:17 am

    Ahh that is such a great quote! Henry is adorable (I know I’ve already said this a million times but it’s true!) If you like black beans and corn, you might be interested in my recipe of the week, Grilled Summer Succotash – I can’t get enough of it right now! http://eat-spin-run-repeat.com/2012/06/27/recap-try-something-new-tuesday-112/

    Oh my gosh…watching dogs play is so much fun. It always cheers me up when I watch my puppy. I can erase a bad mood in minutes when you witness the simple joy of an animal. πŸ™‚

  • Claire @ Live and Love to Eat June 27, 2012, 9:22 am

    I love re-using veggie and fruit salads – looks delicious!

  • Alett June 27, 2012, 9:24 am

    I love love love the thought of the day!
    Sadly, I live in fear of making mistakes and disappointing people (this is really sad considering what I do for a living).

    I know that you and K will instill much confidence in Henry so that he will most definitely NOT live in fear of making mistakes πŸ™‚

    Happy wednesday!!

  • Courtney June 27, 2012, 10:27 am

    How fun! Love all the Henry photos – he is precious πŸ˜€

    i hope i am 100% wrong in this cautioning, however, as a dog mom and a mom-mom, i would reccomend having the dogs give Henry some rrspectful space. the fact that they feel comfortable enough to play like that next to him, means that they will feel ok playing that way with him, and that would not be ok. i had to come to grips with the fact that my girl dog is scared of toddlers, and out of fear, could reaxt badly to a hug or a touch, so we are careful about that. my friend has two sweet dohs that were the loves of her life pre-baby that seemed ok with baby, but one day bit her face as she had crawled close to a food bowl. and now the dogs live outside):so iam just cautioning, hopefully 100% wrongly, that you create a healthy hierarchy, so that future problems may be avoided.

      I was hesitant to say anything either, but last year in our community there was a fatal attack with a baby and a beloved family dog (the parents were even in the same room, but they couldn’t get to them in time before it was too late), so I’ve become a bit of a fanatic about safety with pets and babies.
      I’m sure you know not to ever leave Henry alone with your dogs, but I would be hesitant to have them both on the floor together like that. I don’t want to scare anyone, but I’d rather come off as too fanatical than have anyone else experience what happened to the family I know.

  • Julia H. @ Going Gulia June 27, 2012, 11:05 am

    That meal is making me hungry, even though it’s so simple…it just looks delish right now. I haven’t had a good omelette in a while–maybe that’s why!

  • Amanda June 27, 2012, 11:21 am

    My oldest loves our dog so much. She would laugh and laugh at her when she was in her bouncer. Once she started crawling she was all about following her around and now she runs around with her. They play tug of war and are best buds. Our dog will mouth her but never ever puts pressure on her and I never really had to train her over much. I just always kept a watchful eye and cautioned her when she started to do anything suspiciously wrong and she picked up her should and should nots with the baby really quickly. She’s just a really good dog overall and even though the breed is usually territorial/alpha issues (she’s a shiba inu) we haven’t had any problems with her and our girls.

    • Amanda June 27, 2012, 11:43 am

      Oh and I forgot to mention that our dogs name is one of the first things Claire made an effort to say lol!

      • Laura June 27, 2012, 7:10 pm

        One of my first word’s was “g’dog” (good dog) :). You’ve definitely got a little animal lover on your hands!

  • MomHTP June 27, 2012, 11:25 am

    Really like your thought for the day. FEAR is at the root of most negative thoughts and actions…or lack of action.

  • Liz @ Tip Top Shape June 27, 2012, 11:29 am

    Henry is absolutely beautiful!! And that omelette looks delicious!

  • Janelle June 27, 2012, 11:38 am

    Love that quote!

  • Annette@FitnessPerks June 27, 2012, 11:47 am

    Mmmm omelettes in the morning! YUMM!

  • Samantha Angela June 27, 2012, 12:37 pm

    It’s so nice that your friends keep bringing you food. It eliminates all the cooking to do on top of figuring out what to do with your newborn.

  • Amber @ Busy, Bold, Blessed June 27, 2012, 12:43 pm

    I’m going to meet my friend’s new baby tomorrow… I need to whip up a baby meal tonight! Hmmmmmmm, gotta brainstorm.

  • Caralyn @ glutenfreehappytummy June 27, 2012, 1:18 pm

    aren’t leftovers great! You can be so creative with them!

  • Denise and Laura June 27, 2012, 2:01 pm

    I love when you write about Maggie. She is too cute!

  • BeckyH June 27, 2012, 5:15 pm

    I loved the video =) Please post more doggie videos in the future.

  • Laura June 27, 2012, 7:09 pm

    See, Maggie IS smart–she’s well versed in The Art of War πŸ™‚

  • Coco June 28, 2012, 5:57 am

    I absolutely love black beans mixed with eggs! So yummy!! Henry is getting so big!
