I buy roast on sale and then cook it New England style, for one meal. The next day I make soup, chili or enchiladas for the next day or freezer. It gives us lunches and dinners for nearly a week that way. (Not all in one week however.)
We use leftover roast (beef, pork, turkey etc) to make a hash. Simply cut up the meat into bite sized pieces. If you have leftover roasted potato cut that up too, or you can cut up new ones diced into bite sized pieces , or use canned diced ones.
Any left over veggies, corn, peas or whatever you had with dinner or whatever you have in your cupboard or freezer will do. If you are using uncooked potato cook that first in a frying pan with some oil. Once they are soft enough you can add some onion, the meat, veggies salt and pepper to taste, or whatever seasonings you like, and the gravy.
We often have left over gravy. If the gravy has jelled (we use a boxed gravy called Bisto) just add some water to the frying pan. Once it's all cooked and heated through just serve. Use pieces of bread to soak up the gravy. Our family loves this left over dish.
