LAC, we are cooking/baking twins My husband is the opposite, though. He said to please ignore the sell by dates and use everything we have. I love French toast. I made it yesterday. You can freeze bread if you have room in your freezer.

I have heavy cream to use up (I don't keep it on hand often)so I am going to make black and white cookies tomorrow. My son will love that I'm glad I thought to freeze a block of mozarella cheese a few weeks ago. My DH's birthday is this week, and since we can't go out I will make homemade Chicago deep dish pizza. I'll make healthier food the rest of the week, I swear!

I've been cooking meals based on what I find in my freezer or what needs to be used up too! I have a container of cottage cheese that's past its sell-by date and I found half a bag of frozen sour cherries in the freezer. I'm going to make cottage cheese pancakes with cherry sauce tomorrow.
I made a most delicious turkey and leek cottage pie last week with leeks that had to be eaten up before they wilted any further!

Here is the recipe I use. They may be an American thing? I am not sure.

I also have sour cream to use up, so I am glad to have a delicious recipe.

If you try these, you may want to start with less confectioners sugar for the icing. When I followed the recipe the first time I made it, the icing was WAY too thick and I had to use a lot of milk to thin it out. This will be my second time making them.

Sherry, this is too funny - I am making pizza for my family tonight, although not deep dish. Waiting on the dough to finish rising right now. In my neck of the woods, those black & white cookies are called half-moons. There is a homemade ice cream shop & bakery that we visit in the summertime that makes really good ones. Just thinking about them makes my mouth water.

Pet peeve: wasting perfectly good food because it's one day past an arbitrary "sell-by" date that serves only to help stores with their inventory rotation. It's still perfectly fine unless the milk is sour or the bread is moldy.

I buy half moon cookies from Trader Joe's, but we are not going to go there for awhile.

Thanks to this thread, I had french toast with caramelized bananas for dinner using some bread I had in the freezer, and bananas that were on their way. Thanks for the idea! I can't remember the last time I had french toast.

Agreed. If anyone is interested, here is a link to the USDA Foodkeeper App with guidance on how long things are shelf stable: https://www.foodsafety.gov/keep-food...foodkeeper-app
