I hate when I open the refrigerator and find spoiled food. A week or so ago, I purchased a couple of cantaloupes, an extra gallon of milk, and some chicken breasts. This morning, while getting ready to go to the grocery store, I opened the refrigerator, to see what we needed, and as I was going through the various drawers and bins, I quickly realized that the cantaloupes had gone soft, the milk was out of date, and that the chicken breasts had been put into the refrigerator – instead of going into the freezer, where they belong.
I need to work on a better system for organizing the fresh foods and vegetables that we eat. In the past, we consumed large quantities of ‘junk food’ – and ‘junk food’ lasts and lasts. But, now our goal is to eat healthier foods. So, we need to pay more attention to the amounts we buy and how we store those amounts.
Any suggestions for keeping food fresh, longer?
