Pimento Cheese, Not Your Grandma's Spread

Pimento cheese is one of those foods that has been so corrupted by the food industry that it has become synonymous with other crappy foods like Spam.  I'm not even certain what store bought pimento cheese might contain, nor do I want to find out.  It's a shame because pimento cheese can be a delightful treat, even if it does Read the full post…

Leftover Lifesavers

[ Post by Lisa Tedder ][ Post on March 4, 2009 ][ In Diet Tips and Better Eating Ideas ]

Leftovers are the lifesavers of a busy famiy. At least once a week, we clean out the refrigerator and I have an easy night. There are usually several options so everyone is happy. Don’t let anyone tell you they don’t like leftovers; some things are better the next day such as chili, spaghetti or soup. Plus, leftovers are the green choice when you consider the resources used to get that food to your table. I often plan meals on the weekends so that I have leftovers for Monday when both my kids have after school activities. It’s easy to cook extra chicken or soup for another meal. Add a salad, fruit or a vegetable to round out the meal.

Top Five Reasons to Eat Leftovers
1. Saves money
2. Faster than the drive thru
3. Green choice
4. Family members can eat at different times
5. Healthier than fast food

Be careful not to eat food past its prime. Three or four days is usually safe, depending on the food. Always refrigerate food quickly after meals so it doesn’t spoil.

So use those lifesavers the next time your family is on the run. You’ll be glad you did!
