I cut up vegetables to refill the veggie tray. I like to keep a veggie tray in the fridge so that everyone will eat the veggies. When we have salad I just pull out the tray and a head of lettuce.
I had grapes, apples, oranges, and grapefruit in the fridge that needed to be used up so I made a fruit salad.
menu plan each week but frequently only make about half of the meals listed and still have too many leftovers. I think I am going to start freezing half for another week because my kids are getting tired of leftovers. I would rather do that than cut the recipe that I use in half. If you need ideas click on Using Up Leftovers to read I post I did in 2009.
