Re: Cook clever

One chicken can feed us for days. I roast it for dinner, then remove the rest of the meat and use it in pot pies or chicken salad, then I use the carcass to make stock.

Keep the wax paper from butter wrappings in the freezer, use them to grease baking pans.

Any time a recipe calls for white wine I use dry vermouth. A bottle lasts much longer and tastes great.

A few old bananas become tomorrow's banana bread.

Old coffee grounds go into my flower pots.

Re: Cook clever

Use any leftover sauces in your next meal.  I tend to make my own sauces for meals, so any leftover goes in the fridge.  Great to add to a shepherd's pie, so each shepherd's pie is different.  I often make Honey & Mustard glazed gammon, so the shepherd's pie comes out porky-mustardy-honeyish.  Same with chinese spare ribs, that sauce gives the shepherd's pie a oriental twist.

I use chicken gravy to put in a chicken risotto the next day, with the leftover chicken of course.
