Rightunders
Mr Clean!

In cleaning out the kitchen cupboards and the fridge it's surprising the tasty dishes you can create using a little imagination. I like to call them "rightunders" as opposed to leftovers, as you're preparing these recipes using items found right under your nose. My friend Nancy, a fitness guru, and I got together to come up with a few dishes that are innovative, healthy and most of all, yummy!
