Extension report I Roselyn Biermaier Regional Extension Educator DOGGY BAG DINING Look in your refrigerator. Do you have food from your favorite "take- out" establishment? How long has it been in there? How long did the food sit at room temperature before you put it in the refrigerator? You may be one of the 91 percent of Americans that occasionally take leftovers home k: with them from a restaurant, senior meal site, fast food or pizza place. We now know that over 50% of the food that Americans consume is not prepared at home. The other half is prepared by food service establishments. The American Dietetic Association and ConAgra Foods Foundation conducted a study to find out how we are handling food that we bring home in "doggy bags" or "take out" orders. The survey found that when it comes to storing, reheating and wondering if the leftovers are safe to eat, it is a guessing game for most people. Forty- eight percent of the respondents smelled or tasted the food to see if it was safe to eat. But bacteria that cause us to become ill are microscopic and therefore does not smell or taste bad. Bacteria will begin to multiply within two hours at room temperature. (On hot days the time is only one hour). Twenty four percent of those surveyed said they felt ill after eating food from their "doggy bag." Another cause of foodborne illness is temperature abuse. Is your refrigerator temperature 40 degrees or colder? A refrigerator thermometer is the only way to accurately determine if it is cold enough. Another place that using a thermometer is important is when reheating these leftovers. Why'? Often times the food was not cooled quickly enough, especially if you made a side trip after picking up the food from the restaurant. Also, the container or bag is made to hold in the heat, but not hot enough to be considered serving temperature. When reheating leftovers they need to be brought to a temperature of 165 degrees to kill bacteria. Eighty-five percent of the survey respondents never used a food thermometer. For the elderly and young children, it is important to serve safe food since they are the most vulnerable to becoming seriously ill from foodborne illness. The idea of "buying once and eating twice" appeals to a lot of us. However, if we don't handle these foods properly they may cause us to become sick. To avoid getting sick from "take out" or "doggy bag" food follow these safe-handling practices: Refrigerate restaurant or meal site leftovers within 2 hours of eating the meal. Get in the habit of dating leftovers and eat them within three to four days. Use a refrigerator thermometer. It should i'ead between 36 to 38 degrees to keep food at 40 degrees or colder. Reheat leftovers to 165 degrees. Use a food thermometer to check the temperature. ENJOY.

Regardless of our general attitude towards the winter weather conditions, being stuck at home with children can bring to light a whole different atmosphere. Parents of younger children often express being worn out due to extra time spent entertaining their children. Parents of young teens often claim they can't be in the same room with their children any longer without getting into an argument. A mom stated that she can't believe her once close relationship with her daughter has come to this during a snowstorm. In many families, one of the closest -- but also most conflict- ridden-of relationships is that between a mother and her adolescent daughter. Even in the healthiest families, a certain amount of tension between morn and daughter is common. Dr. Martha Erickson, director of the University of Minnesota's Children, Youth and Family .Consortium, states that morns and daughters often have had an intimate, emotionally expressive relationship, so as the daughter prepares to go out on her own; she may need to push hard to make that necessary separation. Sons also separate, but may be more likely to do that by going off with their buddies or channeling their energy into activities. Girls, on the other hand, often use words and emotions to actively engage mom in working through the separation. As necessary as this process is, it's not much fun for mom or daughter, for Unless your child is more serious behavior having increased difficulty 1 in which case you professional help.
