#### Love your Leftovers Veggies = Frittata

Bundle those leftover roasted veggies into a frittata by adding some eggs and cream. Use up all those leftover herbs and add a couple of tasty items such as capers or anchovies, olive oil and lemon juice to make a sparkling salsa verde to add zing to your frittata. Top tip: put your salad dressing in a jar not on the salad so the salad can be saved for another day.

Love your Leftovers - Cheeses

Cheese is too valuable to waste so watch how Kim and Roz create a platter that uses beautiful local cheeses paired with locally produced crackers and seasonal fruits.
