Operation Crisper Drawer

I am hanging my head in shame as I tell you that I have let some of my Door to Door Organics delivery go to waste.

Due to the combination of meals away from home and my current dinner funk we haven’t used as many fruits and veggies as usual.  The above bowl was destined for the compost – such an embarrassing waste.  Especially the bananas – those easily could have been frozen but the fruit flies got to them first.

I am determined to not let this happen again. I still have quite a few produce items in my fridge / fruit bowl.

My goal is to not let one of those puppies go bad.  You can see that I have my work cut out for me.  If anyone wants to come over and help me chow down on some celery it wouldn’t hurt my feelings. 

Yesterday I started off great, but as usual, as the day went on my produce consumption went down.

What can I say?  At the end of the day Margaret craves olive loaf and cereal. 

Dan and I are also watching my friends’ dog Coco this weekend (the blur in the bottom of the olive loaf picture)!  Lilly is super jealous and spends most of her time making sure Coco doesn’t get anywhere near me.  Such a bully. 

Run

I ran 3 miles during lunch while reading my newly downloaded book: Sisterhood Everlasting.  This is The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants girls all grown up.  I loved those books in high school and college!  I am only a few chapters in, but I will let you know how I like the adult-ier version. 

Thought for the day:

I laughed outloud when I saw this.

  3. Uggh I hate letter veggies/fruits go bad. Luckily our chickens are more than happy to eat them when they are past their prime, but not quite compost-worthy. Good luck with your challenge.
