Well, I am still learning to handle my meals. This time around I prepared only one meal at the time.

Prepare only one meal at the time

I got two lettuce heads, on red leaf and one Boston. This lasted for three meals. So I washed the lettuce and chopped the vegetables and then used only 1/3 of that for each dinner pereparation storing the rest in bags in the fridge. The result were three crisp salads.
