Strawberries and Chicken Fingers

Filed under: Uncategorized — urbandumpsterdiver @ 11:59 pm

A few nights ago we went to the grocery store to buy some meat. There were some chicken fingers that looked really good, so we bought some in bulk.

Well guess what we found a few minutes later in the dumpster? 4 bags of chicken fingers that were still frozen! Manifestation never fails me. Manifestation IMO is a process of actually believing you’re abundant and you will be. If you believe you will be poor, you will be. Poor is a state of mind though. One can have tons of money and live a neurotic unhappy life.

On to the local dumpster. Someone had canned about 2 dozen foods in canning jars. They were completely intact and you could tell they were still good. Someone was probably moving and had to get rid of them. We got green beans, prunes (yes candied prunes and they are good), pears, pasta sauce, and plums. I can reuse these mason jars for food storage. The Mason Jar Company now sells plastic lids instead of the metal. I prefer those, they are not going to rust and they’re just easier.

Tonight on the way home we found a dozen bins of strawberries. About half were bad and the rest were fine. I chopped them up, put them into freezer bags and put a small batch in the refrigerator. I’ll either make strawberry shortcake OR a protein drink.

Since I have so much protein powder from past finds, I’m going to concoct a shake tomorrow. I’ll use non-fat milk, strawberries, a little bit of sugar and the protein powder. Since the weather is now warming up, it’s easier to drink a smoothie as a meal replacement as heavy food really weighs you down in the southern heat.

Being in a small town does not afford you the same luscious finds that you find in a metropolitan area. But living in a rural environment for me and my spouse is safer and saner. At night we hear whippoorwill birds, screeching owls, cute little frogs jumping around and yes tons of bugs.

I now have a fly swatter in every room. I’ve told my neighbor that if she hears me scream quickly, it’s not that I’m in danger but that a darn bug has flown on me again.

I do have to go back to the city until our city house is sold and in this economy that takes time.

So right now I’m having a lemon drop martini. The vodka I found and the mixer I purchased.

Free or half free always taste good!

About a dozen containers of strawberries thrown out. My spouse jumped in to get them.
