My husband gets the credit for this trick. If celery is wrapped in tin foil and then refrigerated it lasts for months. It has been 4 weeks since I last purchased celery and it is as crisp and firm as ever. When I open a new stalk, I use the middle sections with all the small light green leaves first in a soup or stuffing. Then I put all the larger sections back in the plastic sack and rewrap it in the tin foil. I have cabbage and head lettuce wrapped the same way. Stay posted to see how well they are preserved.
Breakfast: Bread pudding
Lunch: Tuna melts with cheese whiz mixed in the tuna, put in a sandwich, then grilled
