We all have so many dates to remember on a daily basis-drs. appointments, business meetings, birthdays, anniversaries, soccer games, etc… The list is endless! So, there’s no way I’m going to remember when I put the salmon in the freezer or what day did I open that jar of pizza sauce in the fridge. Write it down! I keep several Sharpies in my kitchen drawer and mark down the date on the container or package that may take me a while to use up or to prepare–like pickle relish, chicken broth, pesto, etc. One less date in my brain to remember & I don’t have to worry that I’m using food that’s been opened too long or that’s old. Get your Sharpie out and write on the lid, bag, carton–wherever–just put the date on there so you always know when it went into the fridge/freezer.
