Leftover night!  You should have enough beef left for about two meals, and enough pork left for about one meal.  There are two more dinners this week: tonight and tomorrow.  You’ll buy more groceries before Sunday’s dinner.  So you get to pick which one you want.  Personally, I recommend that you eat the beef tonight (and I put it in the menu below) and save pork to give yourself extra lunch options for tomorrow.

If you do have it up for you for cooking, make shepherd’s pie.  It’s exactly the same meal you ate last night, but mixed up into a single dish and reheated.  Add the frozen peas.
