Tips for Making the Most of Your Leftovers
1. Don’t let them hang out too long – leftovers should be thought of as a time bomb. Make a habit out of properly wrapping and storing all leftover food within 2 hours of a meal.
2. The Smell and Sight Test – it is still one of the most popular methods to tell if a leftover is still good. But before reusing a leftover, make sure it doesn’t have any traces of odors, or signs of mold.
3. Keep your leftovers where you can see them – most of the times, leftovers are pushed away further back in the fridge until you can’t even tell you had them, and then you tend to forget them.11
