What are some meals that depend on what you cooked the night before?

Allow me to clarify. You want pea soup? You pretty much have to cook a bone-in ham first. Not absolutely necessary, but one generally leads to the other. Hash needs cold potatoes from the night before. Chicken soup often begins with a roast chicken dinner. Christmas turkey becomes turkey tetrazzini.
I'm just looking for some other examples where you use leftovers to create an entirely new, unique meal. Bonus points for examples of this from world cultures, or it can be something you only do in your family.
