Homemade frenchfries. Potatoes, tablespoon or two of corn erl, sprinkling of salt. About as “all natural” as you can get.

Cooked through nicely, “burnt” tips (just enough), lightly browned on the bottom where resting on the Al-foil. Yum!

Each one was a whole cacophony of textures…

 

And jalapeno poppers earlier today. Aside from like 5-6 slices of Münster cheese in-between, that’s pretty much all I et today. Too hot…

But of course I needed the oven to do both… Sick

Hope you used organic potatoes LB. They are in the dirty dozen.

I grew up eating apples that were untreated with anything, and I swear I can taste the chemicals when I bite into a store-bought apple.

Ah, so the nasties are in the potato-skin. I always peel ‘em sometimes furiously, ‘cause these usually have spots underneath, whether from being bruised or something else.

Yesterday’s peelings weighed about a half of the total of potatoes I had, so figure the outer third is tossed. Generic Idaho taters, nothing fancy.

Hmm, so whaddya to with a huge opened can of whole tomatoes that you wanna use up before they go bad? (Didn’t have fresh tomatoes for EM pizzas, so used canned. Was pretty good, but… different.)

Wellp, got 2 vidalia onions left, minced ‘em, plopped ‘em into the tomatoes in a small pot, and got it a-boiling. Added water to cook the onions while the water slowly boiled out. Add salt’n‘pepper. What else? Eat that plain, like a really really really thick “soup”?

Aha, eggs! Dunno if it qualifies as “shukshasha” or whatever it’s called, but it was good! Put half the t&o into a small frying pan, already hot, and dropped in 2 eggs, let them soft-boil. Was gooooooooooood!

And got the other half for tomorry, too!

Onion sandwich with mayo is actually pretty good. Ham and onion is good too also onion with cheese. I like onions.

I feel sorry for people who don't have a hobby or interest to escape to.

i’d say this sounds like Lightbender needs to make a run to the grocery store,
or
we need to send aircraft in to drop care packages over NYC…get some food in that pantry.

Now i used to think that i was cool,
drivin' around on fossil fuel,
until i saw what i was doin',
was drivin' down the road to ruin. --JT

Every now and again, I go into Garbage Mode, find what’s opened, what’s left, what needs to be used up, and then throw together bits’n‘pieces and make a pretty good meal of it.

Open a jar of tomato sauce (“pasta sauce”), and if you don’t use it up fairly soon, it’ll go moldy even in the fridge.

Anything fresh (fruits’n‘veggies) has a limited shelf-life.

Coldcuts, I won’t touch turkey after the next day, ham maybe the day after. Both will get stinky and/or slimy. Cheese keeps pretty well, though.

Potatoes, onions, garlic, etc., will eventually “go bad”, but not too quickly, but you still wanna use ‘em up before it happens.

It’s nice to take an inventory of should-use-up food and be able to MacGyver a good meal out of it.

Kewl!

All outta bread (saving the last for the birds), got plenty of meat in the freezer, but could use potatoes, onions, garlic, lemons, limes, and… that’s about it for now. LOL

Unno, never let it go that long. As long as it ain’t greenmoldy, should be okay.

Last time, got so-press-ot-to or however it’s spelled/pronounced. I got an easier time figuring out Khaddafy/Gaddafi/Quaddafi/whatever than that stuff.

That’s kinda salami-like, imagine it’d last a while, but yeah, didn’t last too long.

Don’t try that with chitterlings. Smells like pig intestines because well it’s pig intestines. Some love them some think they smell like pig intestines. I’ve eaten them but will never make my favorite list. But I also pumped septic tanks for a while. Sorta has an effect

What causes that—i’ve noticed the same thing whether it is pasta sauce or just plain tomato sauce. i use half a 8oz can of TS when i make Mexican rice and more times than not i can’t use the last half before it has turned.

Of course it’s cheap, only 50¢ a can, but i don’t like to waste food if i can help it—kinda like your Garbage Mode™thing.

Unno. Only guess might be its acidity vs other stuff, maybe mold prefers a low pH.

That’s why when I had that opened can of tomatoes, I had to use ‘em up quick, so made that shukshaka or shakazulu or whatever it’s called.

Yeah, I just tossed out an unopened package of romaine. I thought the bags had little holes in ‘em like potatoes, but nope, sealed. Brown soup at the bottom from pent-up water.

Mentioned that I had an unopened bag when I got 2 more, was eating salad salad salad ‘til I was sick of it. Got my bowl, got some dressing, go for the bag, and ewwww. Nope.

Pisses me off.

Take your Romaine out of the original bag, wrap heads in paper towels, repack into gallon zip bags. Keeps it fresh for a couple of weeks.

Mmm, might have to. Usually it doesn’t go that long, but I still had a full bag when I got another 2fer7.

Fresh stuff I typically just buy enough to keep ‘til I go shopping again, usually once per week. Like today I guess I gotta go. Tired

Still waiting for that airdrop, but nothing yet.
