Confessions of an Ex-Foodie
Lately I have had a lot less patience for grocery shopping, which means that my cupboards are growing bare. As the clutter disappears, I find things I forgot I had, such as a bag of turkey in the freezer, left over from Thanksgiving. That's right -- seven-month-old turkey! I had some last night for dinner, and it wasn't bad. Granted, it wasn't very good, either, but definitely edible. More tonight!
Along with the turkey, I found a chicken spine that I had put in the freezer at some point with the intention of making soup. Today I have no desire to make chicken soup, so it went in the trash.
I'm glad that I didn't find the turkey until after acquiring the microwave. It really is a one-use appliance: the only thing it is good for is reheating leftovers. But since all I eat any more is leftovers, it is just what I need! I did also use it to cook some beets yesterday. At least, I thought they were beets, until I started cutting them up and found that they were red-and-white striped!
