I have two pictures this week. This bit of milk went bad early on in the week, and I really needed the jar for the new batch of milk, so I took a picture and dumped the milk out.
I do usually just bake something with milk that’s gone a bit sour, but this milk was more than sour, and I was worried it would ruin anything I baked. I’d really rather waste 1/4 cup of milk than waste a whole loaf of bread, you know?
Then I have some green beans. I’d frozen these before when I had too many beans to use, and they unfortunately got freezer burnt. I’m not quite sure how that happened, because they weren’t even in the freezer very long. I decided to go ahead and steam them anyways, but I got distracted and let them cook too long. The combo of freezer burnt and overcooked was just too much for me, so I didn’t eat them.
They sat in the strainer on my deck all day yesterday, which is why they look so uber-disgusting this morning. They weren’t quite that unappetizing right after I cooked them.
