Here are a few tips to help ensure the safety of your meal the first and second time around :
1 . Refrigerate promptly . Do not leave food sitting out on the counter for a long time . Anything that that has been out on the counter for a long time . Anything that has been sitting out for more than two hours should be thrown away .
2 . Anything you do not plan to eat within a few days should be put in the freezer . Label everything , including left-overs from resturants with a date . Discard all food leftover within three to five days .
3 . Verify you have heated foods to at least 65*F by using a food therometer . If you are microwaving your food , let your food sit for one minute before checking the temperature . If your microwave doesn't have a timer , make sure you rotate your food halfway through the cooking time .
4 . If taking your leftovers for lunch the next day , make sure you keep food safety in mind . Put cold pack in your lunch box and refrigerate when possible .
Words of Wisdom :
“I like to listen. I have learned a great deal from listening carefully. Most people never listen.”
“Quit being so hard on yourself. We are what we are; we love what we love. We don't need to justify it to anyone... not even to ourselves.”
“Healing is more about accepting the pain and finding a way to peacefully co-exist with it. In the sea of life, pain is a tide that will ebb and weave, continually.
We need to learn how to let it wash over us, without drowning in it. Our life doesn't have to end where the pain begins, but rather, it is where we start to mend.”
“Words themselves aren't that important. Even if somebody says words that shock you, or make you want to kill them, or make you tremble with emotion, the words themselves you tend to forget in time. Words are just tools we use to express or communicate something.”
“It’s so easy and convenient to buy our children gifts, but I encourage and challenge you to give them gifts that TRULY matter! The gift of unconditional love. The gift of encouragement. The gift of support. The gift of friendship. The gift of communication, understanding, and patience. The gift of guidance and support. The gift of quality time. And the gift of loving them for who THEY are. Material things are nice, but NOTHING compares to genuine love! Parenting should be taking seriously.”
