Have you ever heard of "Planned-Overs?"
Planned-Overs is a new term for making extra food to serve another day.
Cheese and Fruit Tray
Cut the cheese into 1/4 inch slices and arrange on one side of a large platter. Using clean kitchen scissors, snip the grape stems into 8 or more small clusters of grapes, and arrange in a pile in the center of the platter. Right before serving, cut and core the apples and/or pears, cut into thin slices. Toss them with orange-pineapple juice or lemon juice and drain. Arrange the apple and/or pear slices on the other side of the platter. Place the crackers in a medium size shallow bowl beside the platter.
Buffalo Chicken Sandwiches
In a large slow cooker, place chicken thighs, then chicken breasts. Sprinkle with thyme and pepper. In a bowl, stir together the Buffalo wing sauce, barbeque sauce, chicken broth and garlic. Pour the sauce over the chicken. Cook on low, covered for 6 to 8 hours or high 4 hours or until the chicken is 165 degrees with a meat thermometer. Before the chicken is done, in another bowl, stir together the plain yogurt, garlic powder, blue cheese, and green onions. Refrigerate until serving time. Once the chicken is done, shred it with 2 forks. When ready to serve, place half the blue cheese dip in a small bowl and place it in the center of a serving plate. Arrange the celery and carrot sticks on the plate around the dip. On a platter, arrange the bottom bun halves and use a slotted spoon to place some of the shredded chicken on each bun, not overfilling the bun. Spread the top bun with the reserved blue cheese dip and put the sandwich together. Refrigerate the remaining cooked shredded chicken for Planned-Overs for tomorrow’s dinner. Serve the sandwiches immediately.
