Today it’s 30 degrees Celsius! I am sure not use to weather this hot. On Vancouver Island where I live we only have a few days that are this hot per year.
Since it is so hot out today, I didn’t want to do anything to heat up the house, when it comes to cooking. I decided to have a small salad to start things off. I made my favorite simple salad with some romaine lettuce, and my favorite home made salad dressing. Here is the recipe:
Lisa’s Simple Vinaigrette Dressing
Add all the vegetables to a bowl and add your desired amounts of the above ingredients. Toss and enjoy.
I topped my salad with some light grated mozzarella cheese and a small amount of low fat feta cheese. It was a simple, fresh and tasty starter. I had one of my favorite juices with it.
Next I had a left over egg roll from a few nights ago.
Finally I had some expired no fat raspberry yogurt. It was 5 days past the expiry date. I am careful when I eat foods that are expired. It smelled okay, looked okay and tasted okay so I think it was safe to eat. I really don’t like wasting food, so unless there is something suspicious looking or smelling about an expired food, I take a chance and eat it.
What are your thoughts on expired foods? Do you automatically toss foods once they are past their best before date? Or do you eat them anyways using caution?
