Waste not Want not: Cleaning out the Fridge

We had accumulated an assortment of leftovers over the course of the past few days - so today I finished them off. For lunch I had the second half of my Asian pulled pork sandwich and for dinner we had a combination of leftover wings from one night and pasta from the other.

Now last night I intended to try to replicate the avocado shake I have had at a Vietnamese restaurant only in a lightened up version. Sadly I discovered at the last minute that I had waited too long and my avocado had turned funky. Not to be deterred, I picked up a fresh one at the market today and went forward with my experiment tonight. To lighten it up, first I bought a lower fat "slimcado" which has 35% fewer calories and 50% less fat than a regular one. In lieu of the sweetened condensed milk usually found in these shakes, I used the sugar free alternative I found on the CD Kitchen website. Finally I used Splenda instead of regular sugar. I was pretty pleased with the result and it was certainly much lower in calories than the traditional version.
