I do have a question about a lemon but first up, here’s a half full jar of tomato sauce that got moldy. Whyyy did I not freeze this? Why??
Next up is something that is sort of not my fault. My produce box delivery service lets me opt out of things I know we hate, so when I signed up, the first thing I checked off was eggplant.
Something got screwed up with my delivery one week, though, and I got a dreaded eggplant. I put it in the fridge, hoping some inspiration would hit me, but it did not, and the eggplant got moldy.
I just really, really do not like eggplant, not even when it’s fried and covered in cheese and tomato sauce.
And since there are very few foods I don’t like, I’ve kind of made peace with the fact that eggplant is not for me.
I sorted through two bags of grapes that were going south, took out the bad ones, cut the soft tops off of others…
and then I froze what I saved.
My kids like to eat frozen grapes, and I can throw them into smoothies as well.
To wrap things up, here’s what my fridge looks like right now.
Except actually it’s a little emptier right now because we finished up the lettuce last night after I took these pictures.
Underneath the lettuce, though, lie three beets plus a big bunch of brocco-leaf (which, as I understand it, is just the leaves of the broccoli plant).
I know I can use the beets in a smoothie, but the brocco-leaf is makin’ me a little nervous. I may try a little in a smoothie and see how it goes.
Maybe it would work in Zuppa Toscana?
If you have brocco-leaf advice for me, share away, because I need some help!
Oh, and the other thing I’m wondering about:
Someone Who Is Not Me put this lemon away uncovered, so it’s pretty dried up, at least on the outside. I feel like you guys had some good ideas for lemons last time I encountered something like this. A cleaning idea? Or a polishing idea? I can’t remember.
Anyway, I did not compost it yet because I was hoping you could share your ideas with me again.
Alright. Hit me with brocco-leaf and lemon advice!
(Also: how did food waste go at your house this week? We want to know!)
