    I watched a food documentary and learned a lot. One of the most meaningful things I learned was related to dated products.  I've been way too picky about this, but knowing how they are determined makes me feel more comfortable using beyond the date on the product.

    I've always wasted food, but health and age issues have contributed to more waste. We are no longer growing many food items, the CSA of the past 4 years has grown to be too much food, and I no longer can do my own shopping. I can do better, but I need to focus on this to make it happen.
