By following its instructions, you will rid yourself of the guilt and use up what's left of the package, jar, bottle, bunch, or can! Two bananas have become more brown than yellow. You've moved the half carton of buttermilk in the refrigerator yet again to retrieve something on the shelf behind it. Why not look up the recipes for bananas and buttermilk in ""The Use-It-Up Cookbook to see how you might be able to incorporate, them into this evening's dinner or tomorrow's lunch? The same can be done with the bunch of celery that has at least one or two stalks that are still green and that barely used can of tomato paste. What makes this cookbook so useful is that it's designed to help you do this, unlike more traditional cookbooks that do not list minor ingredients such as these.
