Things got out of control and I made a much larger batch than usual and was thinking of making soup with what's left. Which is a lot. The salad is more of a free-form spicy southwestern panz with baguette, tomatoes, red onion, garlic, relish, olives, pickled carrots, pickled green tomatoes, pickled jalapeños, avocado and cilantro. Dressing was a light mustard vinaigrette. Probably didn't even need the dressing just the oil with all the pickled stuff in there. Kind of a "what's in the fridge?" dish.
Figure I could use hot chicken stock and give it a whirl with the immersion blender. Garnish with roasted corn, cilantro, and some jack or cheddar cheese. Was also thinking of some greek yogurt too but figure the whole thing would be fairly piquant as it is.
Maybe a casserole? Some sort of bread pudding?
What do you make out of leftover leftovers?

The other half I picked about half the bread out and reserved. Heated 5 cups of chicken stock and in went the rest of the panz. I simmered for an hour and whirled it up with the immersion blender. Another 15 minutes and got another whirl to really smooth it out. Then the soup was chilled in an ice-bath. It's in the fridge with the reserved bread waiting for lunch tomorrow!
Will try it chilled but when the bread goes in it while hot they will make some nice soft dumplings so I'm excited about that. The soup has a brightness to it that is quite pleasing and refreshing.
