Leftovers & Remakes:

[Beef Crostini Leftovers]

Instead of slicing the baguette in rounds to make more crostinis, I sliced it down the middle lengthwise to turn it into a sub sandwich, slathered on some basil pesto mayo and layered the beef.  Delish.

[Mussels in Cream Sauce]

Out of mussels?  Substitute clams and shrimp.  Still amazing.

*Based off of page views.  And well, obviously these are the two most amazingly awesome recipes. 😉
