Despite the bitter cold, I managed to brave the cold long enough to find some interesting goodies to share. Also, my diving was cut short this week when the trash truck complained I was in the way. It's okay because I got the good stuff I wanted.
Twice this week I found a box of eggs to add to my eggs in the fridge. I guess it was about time as I had gotten rid of some eggs the last couple of weeks. I collected another 20 dozen eggs this week so I think I will be set for a month or so. Maybe it's time to do some baking.
I found a bunch of Christmas wreaths tossed in the dumpster when I was looking at it. They looked nice, but when I touched one, it started to flake off. I didn't actually bring any home with me as these seemed to be made of real pine and I didn't need to bring a fire hazard into my house. I was just sad that these were in the dumpster instead of disposed of properly.
It seemed this week was the week to throw out a lot of expired granola. I grabbed them because I figured my mom would enjoy these when she got a chance to eat them. I was amazed that these had a best buy date of 2016. It seems they have been on the shelf for a little longer than the store would have liked.
It seems that fancy coffee was also tossed as well. There were a bunch of these boxes in the dumpster, but I was only able to get my hands on the one. I gave this to my coffee loving boyfriend since I won't touch the stuff myself.
Meats and Veggies
I found a package of bacon this week as well. I think that might already be gone since I haven't had much bacon in awhile. The bananas were for my family since I'm not usually one to eat them. I also enjoyed the cucumber, and a frozen pepper that went straight into some pizza.
I was excited to see these as recently my mom was cooking some jelly and running low on pectin. Now I have 6 more containers and she should be all set the next time I give her too much fruit that she will need to cook down.
Did you so any diving in the freezing cold this week?
