Food Saver and reheating. Plastic hysterics don't bother to read or reply.

Candy | Jan 15, 200712:11 AM     9

Made a gorgeous rib roast for Christmas. Took what was left off of the bones and sealed both individuallly with my Food Saver and froze. Last night I got a pan of water simmering and droppped the leftover roast beef still in it's vacuum sealed packet in to warm up for our dinner. It is sort of the sou-vide idea. Wow! I have never had leftover roast beef taste so good and be so moist. It heated gently and in it's own juices. Tender and lovely like on Christmas day. Saving leftovers and reheating this way is going to be standard around here.

Love that Food Saver. There is going to be a whole lot less waste around here. Cabbage I bought a few weeks ago has stayed fresh and good. I have opened and resealed it twice. Avocado half fresh and green. Limes that don't go all feh and at the price of them anymore I am quite judicious in purchasing limes and lemons. Tomorrow I am going to start experimenting on how long I can keep some baked goods fresh. I'm going to start with oatmeal cookies and go from there.
