Cat Lady No. 325...Leftovers No More

In the wake of today's Thanksgiving food extravaganza, Cat Lady Dania no longer fears the daunting task of using up countless containers of bits and morsels, commonly referred to as leftovers.

She has discovered a wonderful website from the UK called "Love Food Hate Waste", providing handy tips, advice and recipes for leftovers to help everyone waste less food.

The website points out that 8.3 million tonnes (a tonne is about 22o5 lbs) of food is thrown away by households in the UK every year. In 2008 the New York Times pointed out that "Americans waste an astounding amount of food — an estimated 27 percent of the food available for consumption, according to a government study — and it happens at the supermarket, in restaurants and cafeterias and in your very own kitchen. It works out to about a pound of food every day for every American."

Check here for wonderful ideas and recipes for using up your leftovers, plus lots of great ideas about reducing food waste: Love Food Hate Waste Recipes
