Economy in the Kitchen

Lately, I’ve heard of a lot of talk around the subject of economy in the kitchen.

To start off, an important theme in this subject is the organization of your foods so that you throw away as little as possible or even better, not to throw anything away at all!

It’s best not to buy very large quantity of foods that you won’t be using quickly in some recipe, especially if you haven’t yet consumed the previous foods.

You really don’t need to use a lot or very expensive ingredients to create a delicious dish. All you need to do is feel like experimenting, which as you all know I love doing!

Also, be careful not to fill your refrigerator to the brink with things, because the air needs to circulate easily in order to preserve them properly.

If you happen to cook too much food, don’t let it go to waste. Store it in the freezer and you will have ready cooked food on a day when you won’t have too much time for cooking.

Try to make economy a way of life and use it in simple everyday things. This way it will become a nice habit for you and your family.

So I thought I would give you some useful information on how to preserve all of your shopping, where to store them, how long they can last and the best ways to store them.

Information about how to store vegetables, fruits, cheese and meats.

As for instance, apples should be stored in the refrigerator drawer without wrapping them, for up to 3 weeks.

Whereas eggs should be stored in the refrigerator shelf, in their paper packaging, for up to 2 weeks or until their expiration date.

Bacon should be stored in the meat drawer, in a sealed bag without any air for up to 2 weeks and for up to 1 week if you open the bag.

You will find all of this and more every week in my "tips" section…

…. Try to make economy in the kitchen a creative thing… a source of inspiration, without depriving yourself of anything….
