Get a look at all those bags of “old” salad mix that were on their way to the dumpster. Lucky for us, Mr. Produce Guy set them aside along with all our other chicken scraps. Let’s just say The Girl was pretty excited with the loot!
Remember in the “old days” when products were thrown out when they actually were rotten, and not because the expiration date on the package told us they were bad?
Here is what we kept for ourselves from the boxes of “chicken scrap” boxes.
- 10 bags Dole lettuce and/or salad mix
- 1 head cauliflower
- 1 broccoli crown
- 7 apples
There was so much lettuce in those boxes, that we ended up putting a bunch of them on Mrs. Hillbilly’s and Girly Girl’s front porches when we dropped off a few things we had borrowed over the past few weeks.
Having good neighbors is awesome.
Peace Out Girl Scouts, I hope you have a great day, it’s suppose to be around 30 degrees here in the Seattle/Tacoma area. Yikes!
Would you like to see what else we have brought home over the past 8 months?
