Yes, chill your food as soon as possible after shopping. Marinate food in the fridge, not on the counter-then throw out the marinade!
Defrost your yummies in the fridge, not on the counter. Making a big pot of soup? Terrific. As soon as possible, put it in small containers to cool in the aforesaid fridge!
If in doubt, throw it out. You family is worth more than a 99 cent can of beans or even a $10.99 steak. Unfortunately, you and I can’t tell good food from bad by sniffing it.
God has a far better nose than we do.
Our lives are a Christ-like fragrance rising up to God. (2 Corinthians 2:15a, NLT)
Prayer – Father God, help us live so that a Christ-like fragrance rises from our life to your nose. Amen
