...so many ways to use the un-useable

wvtallchic says
I freeze, can, and use. Leftovers are made into individual lunch boxes, most of which can be frozen, and taken for lunches. Buying the pre-packaged lunches in the store is what I find wasteful, especially when you can make those things at home for free. Broccoli stalks coated with cornmeal and pepper and fried in butter makes an excellent side dish, and even leftover mashed potatoes are renewed for tomorrow's meal by adding some hot chicken broth from the freezer, a little extra butter, and whipping them all over again. Even as frugal as my family taught me to be and I am already, I've learned a lot reading these posts. I too use all of the turkey but the 'cluck', but I've never used a baggie to collect vegetables in the freezer for a soup or stew later. I like that. In addition to the freezing and canning I already do, that tip alone will save my household some waste.
