Making an edible plateful out of the scraps left at the back of the fridge is a life skill. Following some conversations on WordPress about how much it costs to eat (A Number of Things), I thought I’d check if I could still do it.
Instead of tossing out the dodgy bits of last week’s shopping, I made dinner from them. This was a concoction of going-slimy mushrooms, wilting broccoli, wrinkling tomatoes, sad spring onions, the end of a jar of chutney and some other miscellaneous. I put goat’s cheese on top, which doesn’t sound very economical but in fact I found the little squashed packet abandoned in a trolley park at the supermarket, and liberated it.
Perhaps it was all the gardening I’ve been doing, but it tasted pretty edible to me.
