Leftovers: Do you "do" them? If so, what do YOU do with your "leftovers

Thursday, August 13, 2009

Yes I do use them. All of us eat different things. If make spaghetti, macaroni and cheese, hot dogs or baked lasagne or any of their favorite foods there will not be left overs for long. We do not do casseroles. I freeze most of our left overs. If it is veggies I freeze them and then the next or so day make a soup. The veggies in the soup were not left overs tonight.

I remember what Beck said about left overs...They are better thrown away in the garbage then eating to put extra weight on you. I still do not like throwing away food it is too expensive. So I measure carefully to avoid throwing away food and freeze the remaining if not eaten up right away most of the time. emoticonEvery now and them I muster up the guts to throw away small amount of left overs but it is not often that I throw away food.

  Times are hard and even when they aren't "waste not, want not" I hade a habit of fixing enough food to last two to three days when my children were younger and I was working, now that they are grown I haven't changed as a matter of fact I really don't know how to cook for one so the food is bagged, dated and placed in the freezer for a couple days from now or next week, that's if and when I cook...lol Food really tast better the next day, you can now tast your seasonings that filtered through, than the first day. emoticon

    My mother lived through the great depression, and the year she and my dad married, they were given a gunny sack of potatoes, half a gunny sack of turnip, and a couple of cabbages, that is all they all for that whole winter. She would kill me if she saw me throwing food away.

She raised a very large family and often had left-overs, so at the end of the week we would have a refrigerator clean out - what we called slumgull - But I have to admit that I sometimes have to throw some stuff out because I forgot about them, or just plain hated them and I don't have a human "garbage can" living in my apartment anymore(lol)

When I do cook, which is not often, I will deliberately make several portions so technically they are not "left-overs" I will package some for the freezer or some to take to work the next day. Sometimes I cook just for the freezer so it can't be called left-overs then either, can they? It's just my version of home-made TV dinners.

    DH usaully takes a small version of the previous days tea into work for lunch the next day. No food is wasted tho, if it won't make a meal the dog has it with his tea, unless there are onions or garlic in it (which he can't have). He loves his veg and gravy with his biscuit meal.

    We "do" leftovers at our house. With a family of 5, I will NOT waste food. It's hard enough to cook for them in the first place! Like Kitt, I freeze some of it. Leftover meat and veggies can always be used in a soup or sauce later. Any meat is good in a tomato sauce! I also take leftovers for lunch at work. One good thing with having leftovers for lunch is portion control. You put exactly a portion in a container and that's all you get at work. Sometimes I purposely cook doubles of recipes in order to have some to freeze. Like soups, chili, spaghetti sauce, turkey sloppy joes. Things like that. Nothing like having something good to eat in the freezer when you don't have the time to cook or the desire! I guess, the trick is getting it portion packeaged and into the freezer ASAP. That way it is less likely to go to "waist." (To borrow from mrshoneyc)

    I'm like you I hate throwing out food. But last night I threw out mashed potatoes, about 2 tablespoons and a few chucks of beef....I tried to get Gary to eat it but he is one of those people who doesn't believe in cleaning his plate, must be why he doesn't worry about gaining weight. anyway I hurried and scraped the plates before I ate it....
I also do freeze lots of things, most times I make extra so I can have at least 2 meals out of it, sure saves on cooking when I work.

    Beck's got a point, there!

I do understand that it is hard to throw things away, though. It's "wasteful"...or you can look at it as "waist-full". LOL

Overwhelmed, Too-Stressed or bottom-line just plain lazy - what's your "excuse" for not exercising?

Wednesday, August 12, 2009

emoticon emoticon Most of the time I do not have a problem with exercising. It sort of comes natural. Of course I count exercise different some times. Heavy cleaning, painting, pilates, car washing, stationary biking, even a short stroll (15 min) is exercise. Is it a marathon mile race? Probably not. But for me it is functional movement when I am on low energy, or I've had an extremely busy/stressful day. Beck said that 10 min is better than no minutes. Sometimes I have to take baby steps. I have learned not to stress out about not being able to run 1000 miles in a day and not to compare myself to anyone Else's' journey. We are all at different stages in our weight loss. So I work at my own pace and sometimes it is slower than others. But I am moving by Gods grace and my faith.

    I don't count normal routine like housecleaning and stuff like that. I DO count washing the van, though - that is a CHORE! I should have counted the 3 days at my moms when I cleaned the carpets in her house! YIiiiiiiiiiii!

mondays blog...Have you ever lied, or felt you had to lie, to

Tuesday, August 11, 2009

I know some will not believe this but no. I have always tried to be just who I am. Never tried to put on airs so to speak and be something I am not. I think it is important to be real. I was different as a child growing up in elementary and high school. I don't lie well. How I feel shows up on my face. So what you see is what you get. I have learned since I am older that being me is ok. I do not follow the crowd well LOL.

I have always marched to my own drum beats.

    I try to always be honest.
My mother taught us if you had noting nice to say then say nothing at all.
BUT I have to admit that I have lied by omission. Like if my friends said isn't my new hair style just perfect I might agree but really thought you look stupid....or some other thing like that....I never want to hurt anyone's feelings.

    As a kid, if I lied, I got caught and the consequences were pretty painful!
I don't lie. First of all, it's not right, and second when I try, I don't feel good about myself at all and correct it immediately.

    Good for you! I think this is a moral issue and it comes with growth and maturity. I think all children want to fit in, so they try to be who they think people want them to be (I see this with my own children as well as remember feeling this way as a child). However as you mature, hopefully you find peace in who you really are. I am very happy to hear you have that peace! Have a wonderful day!
