    I bought supplies to make a cucumber salad recipe I saw online, but when I was done I had a lot of leftover ingredients that I don't normally use. Today I made deviled eggs with the leftover sour cream, dill, and Dijon mustard! Yay for reusing stuff and getting two recipes out of one batch of groceries!

    Hey everybody! San Diego Green Drinks' monthly meeting is on food waste this month! "Join San Diego Green Drinks on Thursday, February 20th at 6:00pm at EVE Encinitas (575 S Coast Hwy 101) as we discuss innovative ways that local organizations divert, repurpose, and allocate wasted food to close the food waste loop."  https://www.eventbrite.com/e/food-waste-and-recovery-creating-value-out-of-wasted-food-tickets-92974658707?aff=ebdssbdestsearch

    I used up my produce before leaving on vacation. Imagine my surprise when I came home and didn't have food! I'm excited to start my fridge out fresh. I think I'll move my vegetables to the front of the middle shelf so I can see them and grab them for snacking.

    I got an email about the "Wasted Celebration" this weekend. It features local and national chefs/mixologists making food and drinks from ingredients that would typically be thrown out of their kitchens. Tickets are expensive but it sounds like such a great idea!
