I had a family size can of cream of chicken soup , reg. size can of roasted garlic mushroom soup and a lg. can of chicken breast on the shelf . SOOO I through it all together in a pot of noodles . It WAS scary at first but everbody seemed to like it . I think I`ll make some mashed potatoes tomorrow and use them under the leftovers .THAT sounds really good.

Sounds yummy.

I was hoping you may use fresh chillies as I have some in the freezer which I didn't know what to do with. I will try it soon.

Today we had shepherd's pie, which I froze at the new year.

A week or so ago, our local Sainsburys supermarket were giving all shoppers two plastic storage boxes to encourage us to use leftovers. We always do as we were brought up in the war when waste was considered a crime.

A recent TV programme said that in the UK it was estimated that up to 50% of food sold is wasted. People buy special offers but don't use them.

On the other hand there is waste at the supermarkets. There are people who call themselves "Fregans" who go to the back of supermarkets and retrieve food that has been thrown away. On one TV programme, one of these people took a reporter to the back of some stores and showed them some of the perfectly usable food which has been discarded. Our Tesco store does not do that, the run it through a compacter, so it cannot be re-used. It something has a best before, display until or use
by date, they will not sell it after that date, even by 1 minute. The store opens 24 hours.


Funny you should mention that , because friends of ours know we have had it kinda tight moneywise because of my disability the past year .So they have been bringing us WONDERFUL out of date food from some store that allows out of date items to be given away . The Lord has provided salads and salad fixings (which we would NEVER be able to afford ,paying for it ourselves, Fresh fruit and veggies are too expensive even if ya are working). And give us gourmet breads and veggies and fruits ,(even exotics ),granola,all sorts of cookies and cakes.
MY point is that The Lord has greatly blessed us with all this.And it is sad that FEAR of being sued has to keep grociers from being generous to the poor and needy . I thank the Lord all the time for our weekly receipt of such good foods. AND the store that provides them ! God bless,

Our last pastor was brought up in a small village where his father owned the local village store. He said they lived on out of date food.

As I posted on another thread somewhere, last Wednesday I bought two bags full of shopping for less than the price of one of the individual items. From about 8.00pm they start reducing things to the rock bottom/ They start during the afternoon by reducing things that are sell by that day by 25%, about 5.00 they reduce it to 50% then later to 25%. In the later evening they will reduce everything to about 10p (15c) or even 5p or less. Recently we bought a lot of leeks, which we are really fond of, for 5p for 500g, just over a lb. We had so many our freezer was full so we had to take a lot down to the church and put them in the freezer there

When we had our church barbecue in the summer, I was asked to do salads, and I wanted a red cabbage to make a red cole slaw. They had one but when I asked if I could have it, the young man said No, it was yesterday's date, so it would not go through the tills as the computer would reject it.

Its wonderful to hear people benefiting from benevolent groceriers.My children ,which are young adults ,are always talking about how Walmart throws away even end of day Deli items such as fried chicken and salads etc. My oldest boy is always trying to get them to sell him the leftovers (not even ``dayold``yet) to take home and freeze . They always tell him ``its no good anymore`` . HOW SAD that americans have let themselves become SO fearful as to discount benevolence.
I often equate the giving of leftovers of grociers and even department stores ,as well as those that have garage sales, with the Scriptural principle of Gods law to leave the corners of the fields for the poor to harvest . It is actually the same modern day equvalent ! And I do believe that businesses are sinning when not giving of even outdated leftovers.GOD gives us individuals intellegence enough to discern what is good and not good. Dont need govt. laws to dictate what can and cant be dispersed.
ANYWAYS , PRAISE THE LORD for the abundance He does give !
God bless

WOW ! I really digress ! I was going to say , as to your remark about church dinners,if it hadnt been for the giving of others to us this year ,with my disability ,WE would not have been able to take anything . For example,we have been given several gallons of fresh strawberries(which my wife made deserts out of ) and fresh veggies which we took as relish trays,etc. etc. AND we praise the Lord for the receipt of these foods we CAN share with others. To GOD be the GLORY !
Again ,GOD BLESS

For lunch I had salmon steak, poached in a Court Bouillon with roast parsnips and carrots, steamed Charlotte potatoes and runner beans.

As the salmon was rather large, I save some for supper and had salmoln salad. I think I preferred it cold.

Stir fried vegetables in sweet and sour and black bean sauces, Stir fried tukey and mushrooms serve separately, as some were vegetarians and some did not like mushrooms, fried egg rice, and prawn crackers. Ice cream with raspberry coulis.

I really came down in the world today and Burger King for lunch.

My grandson has just started his GCSE in law, so I took him to Canterbury Magistrates Court to see the lower level of the law in action. I called my daughter when we came out and she said she and the rest of the family were in BK, so we joined them there. My wife was with them and she had a vegeburger which made her ill.

I did scrambled egg on toast for supper. I usually do it with chives and Worcestershire sauce, but we didn't have any chives. My wife has a vegetarian Worcestershire sauce because Lea and Perrins has anchovies in it.
