Leftovers and Reheating

  • most prepared main dishes can be stored in the frig for up to 4 days and in the freezer for up to 4 months
  • let food cool before placing in frig or freezer.  putting hot food in will warm other foods and encourage bacteria growth....eeeewwwww
  • freeze soups and stews in small batches so you can heat up just enough for 1-2 people
  • when reheating in the oven do so at the original cooking temperature...too high and the food will be dry and overcooked
  • preheat the oven first
  • if reheating in the microwave, use medium power...using high cooks the edges of food and leaves the center cold.  it can also ruin plastic
Until Next Time.....
