yeah...in most states it's against the law to donate the wasted food, but that's starting to change.  but the grocery stores know people dumpster dive and some accommodate it in little ways.

most of the stuff at trader joes is already individually packaged, so that makes it easy. places like whole foods will empty out their prepared foods into individual plastic produce bags and tie them shut. there's a pizza chain in portland that puts leftover pizza (they change out the "by the slice" pizzas pretty often) into clear plastic bags that then go into a pizza only trash can separate from everything else.

i was skeptical of it all until i started to realize how much perfectly good food just gets wasted. last night we got whole grain bread, good cheese, granola, nuts, a ton of cookies and desserts (that are going to a potluck...yes they know where it came from), all sorts of vegetables both fresh and frozen, prepared dinners, pasta, cereal, etc. etc. all in its packaging and all good.

If it wasn't clear, I'm really just teasing, dawg; I've worked enough food-service jobs to know what goes to waste.  I know that there's tons of stuff I would totally eat, wasting away in nearby garbage cans, were there world enough, and time.  God bless, and enjoy.

Gotta say, though, I'm not sure that I would eat Portland pizza left at room temperature for 8 hours REGARDLESS of its receptacle

So we did a pig the other Saturday. This is the final product, ten hours after it first went on.

i know you're just teasin, brocas. but i think most people don't realize the amount of stuff getting tossed out.

and imagine having drunk munchies  in the middle of the night and being presented with a sack of 20 slices of pizza. garbage heaven, man.

and cbs: i've never heard of it, but i'll look it up.

Asiago cheese is kind of the most useless of all cheeses.

I got a like fifteen-pound half-wheel of asiago cheese once.  My roommate was like, "There was a bunch of food left over from catering, and I know you like cheese, so: enjoy!"  So for the next like three months, I slowly worked through it.  It only became an enjoyable mission when I realized you could shred it, spread it out onto a lined baking sheet, and bake it; after it melts, it's gets all crispy like a cracker, and you can use those cheese-crackers to scoop up things like tuna salad or hummus.  Or just eat 'em plain.

Now I kinda want to make some of those!

I'm trying to eat healthy again and cook for myself more after a couple months of fast food and restaraunts. So last night for dinner I had a protein shake because I wasn't totally ready to make a whole meal and I was on my way to a friend's house. I had not been warned however that our other friend had come over and just started making cheese lasagna and yet another friend had brought over home made brownies! Ugh, delicious. So today, for real. The good for you food starts.

I think the thing with Mark Bittman is, it's not some sharp reversal of everything you've ever done before. It's gentler turn into eating more plants and cooking at home more often, just to have something to eat and not for the showmanship. I figure if it's more manageable it'll happen more often.

Yeah tonight I made a giant pan of baked mac and cheese, and made a candied pecan layer cake with brown butter pears from the latest issue of Martha Stewart Living

Butter.

 Heart

I took a nap and forgot to eat dinner. Now I feel like just going to taco bell because I'm hungry and the grocery store is closing but it's really too late to eat anyway.
