So why the fridge you ask? I cleaned out mine yesterday and threw out about $100 worth of old food. This is getting ridiculous. I buy food with all of the best intentions. I am going to make dinner, I am going take my lunch to work every day instead of buying the gross stuff that passes for food in the cafeteria, I am going to master a great low-fat recipe for my favorite scones dammit!! For the 27 years I was married I cooked at least 4 or 5 times a week. For the 1 1/2 years I have been not married I have cooked, MAYBE, once a week. I like to cook. I love to bake so what the hell is going on?
I think part of my issue is I don't eat much processed foods. I don't buy canned anything nor do I buy much frozen food. After Bob had his heart surgery we completely re-vamped how we ate and now I see salt in everything. The other bigger problem is cooking for one seems like such a waste of food. I steam corn and eat a serving and waste the rest. I make a pot of stew and end up freezing most of it or giving it away though my mom is eating better and my freezer is getting full! The last issue is I go to the gym twice a week after work and it is easier to pick up a salad on my way home. So what is the solution? How can I eat healthy and now waste so much food? I don't have a clue but I am open to suggestions.
Enjoy your weekend and stay warm. Spring will be here soon, really!
