The Holidays

Posted by p.bohnert@hotmail.com on November 28, 2010 at 1:25 PM

Thanksgiving is behind us.  I read today about the considerable quantity of food that Americans waste.  I am determined to eat every last bit of that turkey, stuffing, squash, mashed potatoes, and green beans that are, at this very minute, trying to hide themselves behind the milk in the refrigerator.  I know you are there.  I will find and consume you.  There is no escape.  

I am sure I will feel less guilt by finishing off those morsels in odd sized plastic and glass containers than by throwing them away.  Turkey pot pie, turkey fajitas, and turkey salad are all on next week's menu.

If I reach my goal of an empty refrigerator in the next few weeks, I may think twice before buying big for Christmas and New Year's!  If I purchase ten per cent less, I'll save money, eat less, gain less, add less to the refuse and landfills, live longer, die happier, and I doubt that anyone in my family will go hungry.

This is the year of 10% Less!  Anyone care to join me?

I love it! Save 100% of Christmas grocery shopping by staying here for the holidays :) I promise to cook some turkey enchiladas for Pete, or maybe turkey tetrazzini? Of course you know Macey will insist on there being a traditional turkey, potatoes, stuffing dinner as well...

What would she think of a ham for Christmas? So many, so many Turkeys gave their lives for Thanksgiving.

Oh, I forgot. Ham is on the no-no list. How about smoked salmon?

Thanks so much for adding the Duotrope link! I could never have accomplished that!
