Who started this Fire?

The Broadway star of Movin’ Out is coming to the Fort Worth Symphony Orchestra. THE MUSIC OF BILLY BillyJoelJOEL with Michael Cavanaugh might sound like this might be in the vain of a Billy Joel cover band, but that is far from the case. Cavanaugh was hand selected by Billy Joel to star in Movin’ Out and what a wise choice that has been. The Tony and Grammy nominee will be performing from October 16th to October 18th.

Leftover foods – how long should you keep them?

According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture, you should eat refrigerated leftovers within four days to leftoversreduce the risk of food poisoning. If you don’t anticipate being able to eat the leftovers within this period of time, freeze them immediately.

Below is a list of guidelines for storing, reheating and disposing of leftover foods that you can use to help reduce the threat of food poisoning.
• All cooked foods should be reheated to 165° F, refrigerated, or frozen within 2 hours after cooking. In hot weather, that time limit is only 1 hour.
• Remember to wash your hands with soap and water before handling any cooked food, especially food you store to eat later. Make sure you put all leftovers in to clean containers and do not store the foods in the same container the food was in before it was cooked.
• You should place foods to be refrigerated or frozen in small, shallow containers, 3 inches tall or less, and cover them completely.
• Never taste leftovers that are of questionable age or safety.
• Never keep leftovers for more than 4 days.
• When leftover foods are reheated, make sure you heat them completely. Leftovers that are merely “warmed” and not heated throughout are much more likely to cause food poisoning. Cover any leftover sauces, soups, gravies, and other “wet” foods, and heat them to a rolling boil before they are served. Heat all other foods to 165° F throughout. Be sure to stir foods while you reheat them, to ensure that all the food reaches the appropriate temperature.
You can help take the guesswork out of your leftovers with a free, downloadable Refrigerator Calculator. The printer-friendly chart lists popular leftovers along with each food’s recommended shelf-life. Post it on your refrigerator door as a helpful reminder — so you know when it’s safe to dig in — and when it’s better to throw out!
