In my kitchen, I go through my fridge and freezer once a week to be sure I know what needs to be used up soon. I freeze leftover orange zest or chopped bell peppers. I make bread pudding from bread crusts, bannock bread (or my Grandmother Swan's awesome potato donut recipe) from leftover mashed potatoes, and banana bisque from elderly bananas. What are your favourite tricks for making sure you don't waste food or money in cooking?
Please do keep your suggestions oriented towards reasonably healthy cooking. There should not be any answers that feature the word "Spam".
We had a similar thread a few weeks ago on MetaChat, but I thought bringing the question to a larger audience would mean even better results.
