When the leftovers are better than the original meal

OK, this sometimes happens but it’s usually when I’m zipping up the remains of some miserable slop I had the day before when I was too lazy to put out the effort to make it any more than ground chicken and a can of tomatoes…mm, that sounds good though…but then the next day I add vegetables, cheese, truffles and balsamic glaze and it turns into something I’d serve on toast points to the Maharani of Cooch Behar. If she were coming to dinner.

This was the remains of a very fine piece of pork shoulder. I added it to black beans topped it with cheese and jalapeƱos. Oh my god it was good. I guess Her Highness will miss out on this delight, it’s all mine.
