Garbage in, garbage out
Sometimes I just have to do this. Those chips leftover from the Memorial Day picnic, nobody in this house needed them any more. Goodbye. But I did eat some yummy leftovers for lunch: green beans, grilled red peppers, baked potato with salsa and watermelon slice.
Last night I was the garbage can for a part of my kids' dinner: seared scallops. They weren't fans. Even though I presented them as "Chinese scallops" since they like Chinese food a lot. Still, no love from the kids for the scallops. At only 13 calories a scallop but a little over two dollars a piece, none of that good stuff was going to waste. Lesson learned: only buy scallops for appreciative adults.
