This is how I cook at home. We eat out a lot, and I try to balance that expense with making the most of our grocery dollar. I had no idea I was trendy. :)

Lisa:

Conserving ingredients for financial reasons: still untrendy.

Conserving ingredients for environmental reasons even though you're rich: trendy.

Any questions?

:twisted:

Being hard up for money has never been very trendy.

One of Geekboy's co-workers told him she admired how green he was for bringing a lunch every day. Because the fact that his bag of leftovers cost around $2-$3 instead of the $12 that eating out would has nothing to do with it.

I not sure whether it is a trendy & spendy gimmick or a cost effective solution that can save, but has anybody tried Fresh Paper?

This Paper Keeps It Fresh

If I cook the food in the paper, will it taste like curry?

For an investment of $10 I had to try these papers.
I will post an update after I've tested the asparagus and the green onions in my crisper. I'm always tossing vegs that I didn't use up fast enough, these will be worth it if they keep things fresh even a few days longer.
The Amazon reviews are almost completely positive.

We have been using the similar product in green plastic for a few years and are quite pleased with the reduction in spoilage ;)
