My flour/cornmeal was already soaking in yogurt in a glass container, so I thought I'd just put it in the fridge & make cornbread or maybe cornbread pancakes on a different day. Tonight (2 days later- 3 days total including 24 hours of "soak") I peeled back the cover & the strong smell that hit my nose was like taking a big whiff of nail polish remover! Yuck- it was bad & strong! I momentarily wondered if I could still salvage this (my frugal side sometimes knows no bounds), but then I decided I would not make my family a guinea pig for this unknown chemical reaction & threw it out.
What I should have done was go ahead & cook up my cornbread & then put it in the freezer for another night. So, take it from me- use it or lose it!
*my bone broth was made from rib bones I saved when my husband & I went to a restaurant with friends, I also added in some roast vegetables not eaten when we had roast (it was all waiting for me in a baggie in the freezer). Added frugal bonus: after cooking the bones for 24 hrs they ended up being crunchy like a dog biscuit (I could break off pieces with my hand) & have been nice treats for our dog!
**cook up a whole bag of beans at once- you're saving yourself prep time & energy (physical as well as electrical/gas)! You can measure the extra into cups, put it in baggies or containers, label with the amount (like 2 cups), freeze & just thaw the night before when needed the next day
This is our dog Layla & this is how she relaxes- she is so sweet & funny!
