Authored by @eco-alex


HAPPY NEW YEAR! Wishing you a happy and bright year ahead. Let's make 2022 a positive year to remember. I hope you had a great new year wherever you are. Perhaps, like me, you made a lot of food and have some leftovers? Well what better day to start a leftovers cooking competition than 1st January!? This week your challenge is to take some leftovers and give them a new lease of life. Bonus points go to the most transformative dish so please take a photo of the leftovers and then the final dish, as well as any other photos you want to include. As always, extra bonus points go to healthy dishes, and ones that are presented well.


This week I will be awarding a total of around $50 in tips to the best posts. I say around because when its hard to choose i usually end up awarding 6 posts! I will make the awards in one weeks time and then post the results in the awards post. You will receive your reward as $HBD with is liquid in your wallet and ready to power up or do with as you please. I hope it helps to inspire you make your dishes that much better!
