    I am going out of town this weekend and have a green pepper and an onion that need to be used up. I diced them up and have them stored in the freezer to use in a soup recipe once I return.

    Kids Try New Foods

    Anything new! Especially veggies. I do eat them myself, they're just weirdos :)

    I love ALL foods as leftovers. well, maybe not French fries, but I still eat them.

      I love reheating pizza in the oven for leftovers. Sometimes I like it even more the second time around for that extra crunch.

    Getting the kids involved in the meal prep increased the likelihood they'd eat some unfamiliar foods

    This week I have been focusing on using up leftovers for new meals to extend their life. I used leftover onions and peppers from a sloppy joe recipe to add to black beans for tacos. Then I used the taco mixings to make a salad later in the week.

    I watched the John Oliver video on food waste and learned about the history of the HR 644 bill and challenges faced in the legislature. I liked how Oliver used the fast food commercials to depict the issues around food waste in the US.

      I have containers in the freezer of beef and chicken stock. Every time I prepare meat and have leftover stock I add it to them for soups later.
