-Braised pork w/ the liquid & veggies it was cooked with: (white wine, carrots, onions, herbs, potatoes, stock)
-Chicken liver mousse
-Whole wheat pate brisee for the crust and decorations.
I diced the pork, sauteed and added flour (to thicken all of the liquid which I deglazed with). Then I reduced on the stove while I made the crust and blind-baked it. I mixed some of the chunky pea soup into filling and then also put some on top to add some color variation.
IMO, you can make some of the yummiest dishes ever with leftovers because it is just another opportunity to build layers of favor.
This thread is making me want to start a cooking blog.
