** This is the second time I’ve posted about the So Delicious stuff. Swear I don’t work for them, it’s just that noms.

Fridge and meal hack: A little list of who’s about to expire

This has happened to me a few times recently:

I look in the bottom of the fridge, and there are 4 totally neglected apples I forgot I bought. They aren’t rotten or moldy, but they’re not at their best because i was neglecting them snackin’ on other newer stuff that actually had longer to live.

I could have eaten apples instead of my newer carrots. (God I’m a nerd.)

Probably mature people have this all down… (but I kind of doubt it.)

No matter what your diet is: vegan, Atkins, whatever, you have stuff in your fridge that’s going to go bad. (If you don’t, you’re really malnourished, coz most of what you eat is so packaged that it never goes bad. In which case, you and your mustard bottles can take your sweet time with the consumption.)

But my roommates and I have this problem, I have this problem.

We keep forgetting we have onion or kale or leftover enchiladas or whatever.

Part of the problem is that our fridge is chaotic probably.

But part of the problem is mostly poor planning. If I were really over-achiever, everything put into the fridge would be input into some database with old stuff “floating” at top so that it would be most likely to be consumed. But get real. There’s not an app for that ;D

So for now we have a deal to make a list twice a week where we put a post-it on the fridge of stuff we should probably cook in the next couple days so we don’t have to throw stuff out.

This is hard because we all live hectic lives that involve spontaneity. Any one of us could eat out, eat at school, eat at work, not eat, etc.  It’s more like, "If you’re gonna cook something, you might want to consider one of these ingredients/leftovers."

I’ll let you know how it goes.

Food nerdery: The key to good oatmeal is salt

Was reminded of this this morning during a breakfast gathering.

Oatmeal can taste really amazing.

Oatmeal can be really filling. (Compare to pancakes which make you uncomfortably full, and then hungry for “real food” 2 hours later.)

Oatmeal’s secret weapon is salt. Bad oatmeal tastes “bland.” And then your instinct is to sweeten it up. And then it tastes bland and sweet. You still might wanna sweeten it, but you can’t forget the salt.  Ideally it’s cooked with salt, not added at the very end. (But even salting at the end will probably make it taste way better. Just stir it in really well.)

Also, this morning I had So Delicious (coconut creamer) French Vanilla as an oatmeal “topper” that a vegan friend recommended. WHOA. It was great. As the only sweetener, it was magical. Anybody, vegan or not, would love this. Very rich.
