It’s a great weekend of fun, food and fun.
But when the jubilee party is over, you might be wondering what to do with all your leftovers.
From booze to bunting, here’s how to use them and save…
Grill Skills: If you’re picking up a storm, there’s a chance you may have leftover meat. Don’t bin it though. First of all, make sure it has been stored correctly by cooling it to room temperature before storing it in the fridge.
Leftover burgers can be served with chili or Bolognese, strip chicken wings and drumsticks in pasta bakes, and in pork tacos or fajitas.
This is a rollover: Finished it up on Sausage Rolls? Party snacks can be repurposed for kids’ packed lunches. Refrigerate and freeze sausage rolls.
Crisps can be crushed before frying and used as a coating for chicken. Tortilla chips can make a great nachos dinner, and the leftovers can be used for soups to accompany the dip—or chop the vegetable up and fry into an omelet.
Pores for Thought: You often have several different bottles of wine left over after a big party. Pour the remaining fruit into any half of a gin bottle to make delicious-tasting gin for your next task.
Whiskey or tequila can go great with meat, so think about that when planning meals this week. And vodka can be used instead of vinegar from around the house, so steer clear and shine your mirrors.
Useful: It’s splitting everywhere this weekend, but what do you do with it now? Check out YouTube for free crafting projects. I found a tutorial that turned a single bunting triangle into a clever needle purse.
Another option is to spray some cheap fabric (get 2 x 400ml cans from Wilco for £10, usually £5.75 each) and give all the decorations a new lease of life for another party.
Flags can be removed from their posts and framed as a commemoration of Jubilee Weekend – Dunlum has several discounted frames at its big summer sale.
