    Today we're using up our mushrooms from last night's dinner . I have composted the cutaway stems.Also, I made peach ginger jam and composted my peels.

    I hate to recommend a product that is plastic, but I store my lettuce in  Rubbermaid Freshworks Produce Saver, and it makes a huge difference.  I read about it in a Time magazine article about the best inventions of the year, and  I decided to try it.  It really works to keep lettuce fresher must longer.

    Busy schedules seem to often get in the way of meal planning and the subsequent shopping. This will not work for everyone, but since I am retired, shopping more than once a week works for not planning too far ahead ... especially for perishables.

    Another way to prevent waste that I use is when my veggies are getting too ripe I cut them up and make a soup/stew/chili adding beans, chicken stock or vegetable stock.  I do this about twice a month and freeze in small containers.  I spice up with my favorite spices and I like it spicy!

    One other tip is if you make a large meal and can't eat it all before it goes bad is to put it in small containers and freeze it, taking it out the day you want to eat it.

    Make sure to compost any food waste you may have.  We bag ours in small bags that are compostable.
