Hubby loves entertaining at home. He always insist on preparing a lot of food, sometimes more than we can consume. It is on these occasions that we end up with a lot of leftovers. Since there are only the two of us at home, these are more than enough for us to eat.
I hate throwing away food. I have been raised to be careful and not waste food. However, we cannot keep food, especially leftovers, for a long period of time. When they have lost their freshness, that is, they taste or smell funny, we have to throw them away.
There are ways to keep our food fresh longer. One way is to store them properly. Food keepers like always fresh containers are designed to help keep our food fresh for weeks by keeping away harmful gases that speed up the aging process of food. This way, we don't throw and waste a lot of food.
