I somehow completely forgot to host Food Waste Friday last week. But Jo from Simply Being Mum is on top of it, so she’s hosting this Friday.
Since next Friday is the day after Christmas, I probably won’t be blogging at all, so I’ll host it the next week, right after New Years Day.
However, I’m pleased to tell you that I am currently doing pretty awesome at using up random odds and ends of produce from my fridge because I’ve been drinking green smoothies multiple times a day in an effort to avoid the plague that has hit most of my household.
(Coughs, aches, and high fevers of 102-104 have hit everyone so far except Sonia and me.)
I’m all, “Ok, immune system, don’t fail me now. Here, have some more kale. I basically can’t get sick if I ingest prodigious amounts of kale, right?????”
(A girl can hope.)
The good news is that if I do catch it, everyone else should be on the mend by the time I’m down for the count. So, they can all take care of me.
I’m almost through the huge kale bunch that came in my produce delivery box (my Vitamix is great at blending it up thoroughly), I’ve used up all sorts of frozen fruit odds and ends from the freezer and fridge, and I’m doing great at getting through my bananas too.
And I made a big batch of (actually tasty) chicken broth from some bones in my freezer too.
In other discombobulation news, I usually post a photo on Thursdays and then write a post on Fridays. But I wrote a post yesterday (I was excited to tell you that my dishwasher is fixed!), so to keep the backwards theme going, here’s just a photo for today.
I don’t generally think winter is a super beautiful time of year unless there’s snow on the ground.
But the other morning, the air was thick with fog and combined with a barely rising sun, things did look kind of magical outside.
Have a lovely weekend! I’ll be busy trying to help my sickies get back to health (and also hope-hope-hoping not to catch it myself.)
And if all goes well I’ll see you on Monday, in good health.
P.S. I just now remembered that I have a 5000-Swagbuck giveaway to do! I’ll be back a little later today to put that up, so check back in in a bit!
