Salvaging food for an unconventional lunch
May 10, 2022 3:37pm CST
After cleaning my refrigerator, I decided to make my lunch with some things that I needed to use. It may be an unconventional lunch, but it was actually quite delicious. A couple of spoons of rendered bacon fat, sliced mushrooms, two small steamed red potatoes, garlic, a shake of Worcestershire sauce, and the sprinkling of homegrown dried parsley became my lunch. It was actually quite tasty. Tonight, I will have to pay attention to protein and making a salad. But, for now, my belly is filled. Photo is my own.

@RubyHawk that's the freezer that I have, but I think it's a little bit larger than some of the freezers I've had on top the refrigerator. I have an ice maker on the inside of there, as well, which I don't like having in there. It's a space waster! LOL

I didn't find this fancy, I was just trying to use up what I had so I didn't have to throw it away! LOL and I just had a little bit of the Bacon fat left over from the night before in my cast iron skillet. I had not yet washed it or thrown it away! I don't save that kind of stuff because I don't eat it very often. Had it not been the bacon grease, it would have been Olive oil.

@TheSojourner I mostly don't "cook" for lunch . . . either heating up leftovers or just eating ingredients rights out of the fridge . So this is fancy for me . And oohhhh, have to admit that bacon fat makes things taste SO good!!!
