Throw by date
These days I find myself looking into the fridge for items and specifically for their throw by date, which admittedly is a little irritating. “Why did I buy that bottle of whole grain mustard, only to have it thrown out today?”
It is precisely this sense of overt consumerism mentality that irks me. And at the same time on this beautiful albeit damp New Year’s Day (2018) that I am scavenging through the fridge scrounging for scraps to make breakfast.
Alright, mac and cheese it is then. The macaroni in the box is probably still fresh (I hope), which is just about all that I have left in the dry pantry. Some leftover streaky bacon, and some sharp cheddar and we should be good.
Indeed we are. A little chicken stock, some pre-rotting tomatoes and minutes later we have a very nice macaroni and blah blah. There is no proper name for this. But we love it.
Sorry the working title should be “macaroni and cheese” but I need to remind myself to not over consume. Hence the “throw by date” title to remind me to not over consume.
