Check out this advice:
After 46 years of marriage, John and Willie Wright have hit upon a winning system: "We eat 'new' food on Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday nights, then on Thursday we have 'smorgasbord' with the leftovers from those three nights."
(Time-out for a triple forehead smack right here)
46 years? Tell me, what is more disturbing - that it took these rocket scientists more than 4 decades to realize they could eat leftovers for dinner or that the writer of the Slate column regards this as a newsworthy way to avoid food waste? I just can't decide.
Slate seems to be trying to give the Wall Street Journal a run for its money, as it were, in the doling-out-idiot-advice category. Thanks to the hard-hitting journalism practiced by these 2 institutions, I know that not only can I save money by continuing to drive my "old" car, I can also join the frugal revolution by eating the still-edible food left in my fridge. Wow.
