Tip
  • Meats to Keep on Hand: Some meats store longer than others. This makes them a good choice for hectic, ever-changing schedules because if you dont cook them on the day you planned, theyll usually keep until you can get to them. Next time you shop, check out the sell by and use by dates of meats like pepperoni, kielbasa, and packaged corned beef. Youll notice that these selections usually have a longer shelf life, when refrigerated. Keep these meats and a handful of ingredients on hand. That way, you can get started on dinner without a time-eating trip to the store. (When it comes to cooking, isnt a trip to the store sometimes half the battle?)
