Wonderful Site

I copied this from my friends blog, because I knew you would all want to see it. With all of us trying to save money on food this is a great place to get some great info. Check out her blog. There is a link at the bottom of this post.

Don't Toss That Lettuce Yet!

I usually go on a rampage and clean out my fridge every week. As much as I try to use up all my food, including leftovers and produce, there are are some days when food does go bad and I have to toss it.

How do you know if your food or beverage has gone bad, and needs to meet the garbage can?

Check out this site called Still Tasty.

You simply search for the food or beverage, indicate how long you've had it in your fridge or pantry, whether it's been opened, and you'll find out if you need to toss it out or not.
