Saving on food

Have your greens gone pale? Wondering how to make the cheese last until Friday's casserole? Not sure what to do with the beef in the fridge -- and it expires today? Don't toss anything in the trash. Think food preservation.

Americans waste up to 34 million tons of food per year, according to the Environmental Protection Agency, tossing millions of dollars in food in the trash. Save money and even a little time with these tips on perking up leftovers, reviving veggies, lengthening the life of fresh produce and giving that stale loaf of bread another shot at the dinner table.
