Stuff it in

Tuesday, October 11, 2011

Don't expect this to make sense.

I'm having a struggle and am using eating to stuff it in. I'm not even sure what the struggle is, though I have a good idea. Meanwhile, there are leftovers in the icebox that I neither want to freeze or hand over to my outside animals. That is something in my past about eating because the kids in China are starving (yeah, I grew up in the 60's) and having a grandmother that grew up in the depression and every iota is precious.

I told my accountability partner I would have to bite the bullet and get this stuff out of the house. Most of it isn't mine in the first place - it's things I made for hubby before he left for his hunting trip. I have to adopt a different mindset. I thought I had done this but obviously not.

OK, inventory of the great stuff I do have on hand and can incorporate into tomorrow's meal plan. Watermelon, bananas, winter squash, grains (brown rice and barley already cooked), frozen strawberries, salmon (canned and a frozen filet), tofu, fiber one (which makes a great breading when ground up), yogurt, cottage cheese, and elk.

I just made my case: I can eat healthy and I can make compost out of the junk.

    I grew up way before you girls [won't say how long]. Parents grew up during depression. I come basically from German heritage. I also heard about the poor children in China.

    Usually, though, we had no leftovers. Still it was a lot of potatoes, startchy foods.

    That's my 'comfort foods'.

    Wow... lots of leftovers... I grew up in the 60's, too... and had a grandma that went through the depression... and I'm an MK (missionary kid), married to a Dutchman (known for being very "frugal"), and now a missionary wife... so it's VERY hard to throw away ANY food!

    When I can get over all that... and I really can't find anyone else to take the food and I can't eat it... my plan is to ruin the food with dishsoap or something... :-) Even just writing it, I find it so wasteful...

    Glad your plan is workable!
