My dad washes foil (and many other disposable food storage stuff) so that he can recycle it. This is the guy that raised me in Arrowhead stadium and yet has only watched 3 NFL games in the past 2yrs because of Kaepernick (Sp?WGAF).
My mom is a lot like your grandmas. My grandparents as well. That generation grew up during or just after the depression and WWII so everything was used and reused due to shortages and rationing. It also didn't hurt that, in my family, they/we all grew up poor (I should qualify, American poor), so I got some of that as well. You make do, and only buy something new if you don't already have something that will work for whatever it is you need.Yeah, both mine and my wife's g-mas were serious reusers/recyclers. Wife's grandma washed, saved and reused the styrofoam trays meat came on!
But I myself tend to save way more things than I should because I "know" just one day it'll come in handy. Because ya know what, on occasion I've been right.
Not wasted though. It would be consumed later, as part of the pork. That's a big difference from just throwing stuff in the trash. I hate throwing food away, but I hate it less when we can give the old stuff to the animals, even the ones we don't intend to consume.My great grandfather wouldn't touch a leftover. Leftovers were for the hogs.
This so much. Saving a freaking trip. I find myself making things work for just that reason. I suspect there's been times it may've been quicker to just go to the store for what I actually need as opposed to trying to come up with a work around but heck no to all that. Especially after I've already found something usable.If it's in decent shape and not unmanageable, I keep it around and often save a trip to...
Preach, brotha! I even jazz them up if I have something to do so. Had a leftover steak yesterday. I had some mushrooms and an onion. Whipped myself up some gravy. So good!Not being a farmer, I love leftovers. 80% as good as the first time, 5% of the effort.
https://www.forbes.com/sites/lisettevoytko/2019/07/03/jeffrey-epstein-documents-could-expose-powerful-politicians-businessmen/#10618475ac9fA federal appeals court Wednesday ordered that 167 documents in a lawsuit that alleges famously well-connected financier Jeffrey Epstein participated in a sex-trafficking ring should be unsealed—and that many of his powerful friends could be named.
- In its 27-page decision, the court cited the public’s right to access the case information outweighed the privacy of certain individuals, “including numerous prominent American politicians, powerful business executives, foreign presidents, a well‐known Prime Minister, and other world leaders.”
- Virginia Guiffre (now Roberts) filed the lawsuit against Ghislane Maxwell, alleging that she had used her as part of a sex trafficking network of underage girls to Epstein and a number of his famous friends, including his lawyer Alan Dershowitz and Prince Andrew. Both men denied the accusations.
