Throw pillows can really cozy up a home. I love them and I have plenty of them. However, I could not justify spending $25-$80 on a throw pillow. That’s when I discovered this trick!Continue reading
If you follow me on instagram (@lifewithelizabethwitt_), you know I talked basically nonstop about our garden. I had never curated or tended to a garden in my life, so with little experience me and my husband decided to learn as we go. Or better yet, learn as we grow *cheesy laughter*.Continue reading
I had a sweet girly message me a few weeks back wanting all the details on leftovers, how I store them, and how long I keep them.
So major disclaimer, I’m super picky about food. If I even have the slightest worry that my leftovers wouldn’t be safe to eat, I toss them. However, I received these storage containers as a wedding gift and I l o v e them. On top of the fact they AREN’T plastic (never ever microwave food in leftovers), they also provide an air-tight seal.
I also really love that you can very easily clean every nook easily because the seal detaches and allows room to run a sponge or wash rag through it.
As far as keeping my leftovers:
If its meat or fish: I have to eat them the next day. Any time after that, I toss.
If it’s veggies or bread based food: 2 days max.
If it’s pasta or soup: I keep and eat within 2 days.
I have been known to purchase more chicken than we can eat before it expires. If this is the case, I freeze it before it goes bad and will use that type of chicken for any crock-pot recipes.
So yeah, leftovers don’t happen to often around my house but when they do; this is my method. I think one of the hardest things for me cooking wise right now is learning how much to cook as to not waste. But I feel like there is also a delicate balance of not cooking enough, ya know? I’m sure some of my fellow wife subscribers can relate!
Comment on this post to let me know how things go for you!
With love, Elizabeth.
As many of you already know, wedding planning and your wedding day can be unbelievably stressful—chaotic even. However, me and my team took many MANY steps to ensure that our big day went off as smoothly as possible.Continue reading
So, last night while me and my husband were winding down for the evening, discussing the plan for the next day it dawned on me; we still don’t have a typical “routine”.Continue reading
I love homemade jam. It’s simple, requires few ingredients, and is absent of sneaky chemicals.
Power. A concept I have come to realize is elusive in its entirety to myself and most likely 80%-90% of this blog’s audience.
When I decided that I was going to start a blog, I jumped feet first into the blogosphere. For years I had been following bloggers from a wide variety of categories– fashion, food, travel, lifestyle, etc. I felt consumed in this realm of content that left me feeling empty and wanting to live a life that was unattainable for my preferences and my resources.Continue reading
Skin care. Now, I’ve never been one to buy fancy skin care products nor have I developed a super elaborate skin care routine. I do, however, struggle with hormonal breakouts and textured skin due to just life in general. Air pollution, sweat, puppy kisses, etc.
I would wash and scrub my face every night and morning. Then, I tried just washing my face once a day thinking that would be less irritating. I tried simple face wash, exfoliating face wash, sensitive skin type stuff…nothing was helping.
I was still ending up with rosy, irritated cheeks and nose which left me feeling like I had to wear make-up everyday for an even complexion.
On a whim, I bought the Garnier SkinActive Micellar Cleansing Water and began using it as a make-up remover vs. wipes. I saw improvement in my skin within a couple of weeks.
Then, I went to my local store and found micellar foaming cleanser by the same brand. That’s all I’ve used for about a 1.5 years now and I experience way less break outs. I go without make-up more often than not now.
