What to do with leftovers?

Yikes! Where does the time go. I have been so busy with the holidays and giving parties that I have been remiss with my blog entries.

What has been on my mind is the subject of leftovers. How long will they last in the refrigerator? For example, it’s suggested that raw meatballsĀ  stay in the fridge for only 3 days before cooking. Cooked meatballs (keftethes) can last five days or more and they can also be frozen. Freezing keeps food safe almost indefinitely. Meatballs can be kept frozen for 2 or 3 months according to the USDA. Once food is thawed in the refrigerator, it is even safe to refreeze it.

Food is scarce for so many people and food costs money. Please don’t throw food away! If you are not sure, the best bet is to freeze.
