check it out at the end! Wash dirty dish towels in hot water. Storing Leftovers Safely Put leftovers in the fridge as soon as possible. If you leave leftovers out for too long at room temperature, bacteria can quickly get to your food, turning your dish into food poisoning. Store leftovers in containers with lids that can be snapped shut. Bowls are OK for storing leftovers, but be sure to cover them tightly with plastic wrap keep the food from drying out. If you're freezing leftovers, freeze them in its each bag, so they'll be easy to take out of the freezer, pop in the microwave, and eat. Eat any leftovers within 3 to 4 days or freeze them. Don't freeze any dishes that contain uncooked fruit or veggies, hard-cooked eggs, or mayonnaise. Storing Leftovers Safely store leftovers in plastic containers, plastic bags, or aluminum foil. Don't fill bowls all the way to the top; when food is frozen, it expands. Leave a little extra space about ½ inch. Eat frozen leftovers within 2 months. take a look in your freezer, take time to look at the food that you have, is it expired, has it gone bad, does it look strange to you since you put it in the freezer, if so, throw it away, its probably gone bad and its time to throw it out. Microwave Magic Use only utensils and containers that are allowed for use in the microwave. Plastic plates and bowls are usually OK in the microwave, don't use lighter plastics like margarine tubs or cottage cheese containers. The heat can melt them, which means that some of the chemicals in the plastic can be transferred into your food. Most glass and ceramic containers are OK to use in the microwave. If you're not sure about glass, here's an easy test: microwave the empty container for 1 minute. If you remove it and the glass is cool, it's OK for cooking. If the glass is warm, it's unsafe. Waxed paper is safe for use in the microwave, but don't ever use brown paper or brown grocery bags. And never use aluminum foil. Microwave Magic When covering a plate or container with plastic wrap, try to keep the plastic wrap from touching the food while its in the microwave. If a food comes packaged in a foam tray, remove it from the tray and take off any plastic wrapping before microwaving. The heat can make foam trays and plastic wrapping melt. And don't use the trays again that are included with microwave dinners or other foods. If you're using the microwave to defrost foods, finish cooking them right away. If you're using the microwave to heat leftovers or frozen meals, the food should be very hot and steaming. Always look at the microwave directions on the box, especially the length of cooking time. The Egg Challenege the egg challenge is when you take an egg and you put it in a container full of water and you put the egg in, if the egg sinks it has not gone bad and is good to use and eat, if it sing and lands on the point than its ok to use, if it floats its time to throw the egg away, its not good to use any more Want to make your own cleanser?
