This week I didn't have a freezer melt down. Yaay!
I saved myself from another embarrassing confession by using my freezer. Hopefully we'll do a better job closing the freezer door all the way, and my efforts won't end up photographed for next week's Food Waste Friday post.
This week I froze some brown bananas for my favorite chocolate banana peanut butter smoothies.
I think the baby will enjoy these shakes in the future, too.
I also froze a half gallon of milk before it expired. I read somewhere that this was a good idea, but I'm not sure how to use this milk in the future.
Do I just thaw it out and use it as normal? What would the expiration date be once thawed?
Things take a long time to get shipped to Newfoundland and it is really easy to accidentally buy already expired things.
|I JUST BOUGHT THIS!!|
I know the expiration dates printed on things are generally overcautious, but I never want to risk anyone getting sick.
Does anyone have any rules of thumb for knowing how long past the stamped expiration date things are still good for?
Thats it for my Food Waste Friday. Check out other confessions at Frugal Girl's site.
