It's been an interesting week of dumpster diving. Since Tuesday was a holiday, I had a little more time to dive. I also was visiting my parents, so I knew I had people to eat the food I was finding.
So the most interesting items I found were the five wooden camels with three people who I assume are supposed to be the three wise men. I grabbed these as if nothing else, they will make good firewood. Note in the picture the three little figures in the first camel.
I found a box of apples this week which was great since my parents enjoy apple pies. This amused me as I read the signs that told me to enjoy baseball, hotdogs, apple pie, and a sober ride. I was just helping us get food for the apple pie.
Bagels and Bread
I grabbed a bag of bagels this week as well. I showed up to the dumpster as an employee was throwing away donuts. I asked if I could get those, but was told I didn't want them, they were trash. She was right that I didn't want the donuts, but I did want the bag of bagels that was in the dumpster. I assume these spent very little time in the dumpster since they were on top and other bakery items were being thrown out when I arrived.
I also grabbed a few loaves of rye bread since I know my dad likes those. The french bread was gotten to make french toast for breakfast in a couple of days. The cake was in there as well.
This crate of food was a nice find as it contained a variety of items. As you can see, it has bananas, plantains, cherries, oranges and corn. The nice part about this box is it didn't contain too many of any one item. I also was at the dumpster when this item came out from the store so it didn't even make it into the dumpster.
Other things I found this week in the vegetable department were some broccoli veggie mix and asparagus. Usually asparagus isn't worth grabbing when I find it in the dumpster, but this time it looked like it would be good if I ate it immediately. Since I find asparagus a treat, I'm always happy when I find some worth grabbing.
The other veggie find this week was some precut celery. I enjoy celery, but usually I'm too lazy to cut it up so it was nice that I found some celery already cut up and I could just grab it for my lunches.
Last but not least, I found some cookie thins this week. I only grabbed a few packages, since I don't tend to eat them, but I hope they will be enjoyed.
