From Dumpster to Dining Table

Filed under: Uncategorized — urbandumpsterdiver @ 4:20 pm

I’m showing you my dinner today. Everything on the table was found in the dumpster, the carrots, the potatoes, the butter, the place mats, the meat (which was found last night frozen).

Last night we recovered 3 cases of juice (which is going to the local church), 1 case of egg rolls, 1 case of blueberry pies, 1 case of weight watchers breakfast sandwiches, 2 pie crusts, 1 case of french toast sticks, some milk (still good), 2 containers of sweet tea and few other odds and ends.

I had purchased a second freezer to put in the basement. It is now full. Couldn’t even slip a newspaper in it. Nature abhors a vacuum, have something empty and God will fill it.

Now I realize all these frozen meals are not the healthiest. We still eat fresh fruits, vegetables and lean proteins, along with rice and beans. But if we’ve been out all day and don’t want to fix a full meal, these are a good supplement to our grocery list. I couple one of these frozen things with a salad or steam vegetables.
