It has become somewhat of a challenge with me to use up everything I have in the refrigerator before going back to the store.

There is so much waste in our country that I try to be as mindful as possible to not throw away anything that can still be eaten.

We had this with a dry pinot noir and ate the leftovers, cold, for lunch the following day.
