Stilly River Sage BS: Recipes - what are we eating? (2562* d) RE: BS: Recipes - what are we eating? 26 Dec 20


The other day I bought 5 little $0.98 sandwiches in the freezer section of my local grocery that I was going to add to the "community fridge," a place where people in the neighborhood 4 miles north of me can go to find food when nothing else is available for purchase nearby - a "food desert." Then I realized that these sandwiches couldn't be added. The county health department insists that meat be shelf stable, not just cooked and frozen, because there are no guarantees on the fridge temperature. So I tried one of them tonight. The list of ingredients is intimidatingly long, I won't buy more, but I won't waste these. And to tonight's sandwich, a buffalo chicken breast meat patty and bun, I added mayonnaise, a few drops of my favorite hot sauce, and a couple of my homemade garlic dill spears. Not bad.

Next week I'll find some canned tuna and other shelf stable protein to add to the shelves next to the fridge at that location. I donate to the county food bank, but I also try to add food ingredients or quick to fix meals (soup cups that need just boiling water; cans that have pull-tab tops for homeless to be able to eat, etc.)

We have suddenly reached a critical state for millions on the US. While Trump fiddles millions starve. Literally. Benefits for several important food and unemployment programs ended today and tomorrow unless the bill is signed or congress acts quickly (if the bill is vetoed). If the bill isn't vetoed it will run out the clock and then it is too late for this congress to act. Trump is a cretin and I wish the COVID had done him in.
