• Do not stand in front of an open refrigerator trying to decide what to
eat or prepare for mealtime. Instead, keep a checklist of your refrigera-
tor's contents on the door and check them off as they are eaten.
• When purchasing an automatic defrost refrigerators, look for a refrig-
erator with a power saver switch. This
turns off the defrost heater unit when
humidity is low in the winter. It could
cut your operating costs by 10 or 15
• Keep your freezer as full as possible.
Foods will retain cold better than
empty air and make the refrigerator
• When cooking vegetables cut them
into bite-size pieces. Steam them
instead of boiling. They will cook faster and retain more taste and
nutrition. Meat cooks faster in smaller pieces, too.

pleased by the interest shown in the position
here at Adat Shalom."
