What's growing in there?

Today we're going to begin tackling the kitchen.  Some are certainly better than others, but today I'm going to ask you to attack the area where most of us have something lurking.

Today you're going to go through your refrigerator.  Take out anything that you can't remember when it went in, anything that's growing, and anything that has lost a lid because it will no longer properly seal to maintain it's freshness.  Next check out this wonderful Food Storage Guide and use it right away to finish going through the fridge.  Pitch everything that isn't within the guidelines and make this your new plan. :)

Now, if you have the extra time today, this is also a great time to give your fridge a good cleaning.  If there isn't time today, that's okay too!  We're going to put this part on next Saturday's list so you can add it to you "to do's" for the future as well.

Last, but not least, find a permanent marker and place it in the drawer next to your fridge.  When you put something with a longer shelf life, such as condiments, in your refrigerator, write the date it will expire (based on the food storage guide) right on the label so there's no more confusion about when to pitch it. 

Blessings and peace!
