It's been a long week. The wife had a kidney stone procedure Monday, crazy work week. Made very little progress in the house.

A little frustrated as I was looking through the freezers for pork chops and found a dozen preflavored pork loin packages. Those things are nasty. Why a dozen? "Because they were on sale 75% off"....

If I had chickens, they would be feeding on those things.

Unbeknownst to me, she has all three freezers packed full of I don't know what.

Ugh, very frustrated right now. I hate wasting food (and money)

Uh - oh! In my former life there was one flavor that my dh liked.... I wanna say it was garlic/herb flavored? It wasn't bad. Maybe you can wash 'em really good and re-flavor them? I know they're usually injected with something - but maybe some barbecue sauce can overcome? Or used sparingly in a pot of beans? Might be tolerable and wouldn't be wasted?

Hope next week is easier!

I don't know what it is that is so off putting. Mouth feel to me is a little like gum. The flavoring tastes fake.

No need to waste it. You can pass on the gift to others. 💗 Still out the money, but you might not feel as bad about it.

Pro tip: write your freezer inventory on the door/lid of the freezer in dry erase marker. Washes off with isopropyl alcohol if you forget it for a long time and it doesn't wipe away dry

I had to take a brief walk in the sun earlier.
