Use up the left overs

January is a time when there are lots of bits and pieces left from Christmas... use them before they go out of date
cream can make a base for a pasta sauce (or put it in mash instead of milk and butter!) (but don't do as i once did and forget that it was sweetened whipped cream... not so good on pasta!!)
wine can be frozen and used up in sauces (red is good in bolognaise)
chocolates left in the box.. the ones no one likes,  use them up as ice cream sauce.  toffees, strawberry creams, coffee creams can all be melted down with a bit of cream over a gently heat (though i'd suggest keeping the flavours separate)
Cheese ... throw it all in a white sauce and make a tasty macaroni cheese
