Have you ever had leftovers that you weren't sure were OK to eat? I have and I have smelled them for the LAST time!!!To help me organize leftovers in the fridge,I started a new habit of labelling.It takes a couple minutes,but I never have to worry again! When I am storing leftovers in airtight...
containers,I want to know THE DATE when the food needs to be eaten,so I write on a strip of masking tape -'TO BE EATEN BY --and give the date. Also it's helpful to add the NAME OF THE FOOD just in case it's not recognizable! This way as I am cleaning my fridge ,I'll know if the leftovers are OK!
Whenever I come home from dining out. I immediately weigh and measure the leftovers and store them in the fridge in portion controlled containers. This way when I go to eat them I know they are already the right amount and it keeps me from overeating. This also makes lunch for work quick and easy as I can just grab a container and go!
