Oh $#!T We’re Moving Pasta

Garbage pasta

[How do you like that censorship, Mom?? Just for you.]

Confession: I think I am a hoarder. Not an animal hoarder (yet). I hoard food like I lived through the Great Depression. Seriously.

Just four days out from moving day, I found myself digging through piles and piles of almost empty food items. What the hell was I planning to do with less than 1/2 a cup of brown rice pasta, two carrot sticks, like eight frozen green beans, maybe a quarter cup of shredded cabbage and a sprinkling of chickpeas?

Make lunch, apparently.

I don’t know why I didn’t just throw these final few bits into whatever meal I was making the last time when they became straggling leftovers. Or why I didn’t just throw them away. What can I say? I’m frugal crazy.

And while these food scraps don’t look like much on their own, their whole is greater than the sum of their parts. They came together to make a perfectly suitable must-clear-out-the-kitchen-this-week meal.

Tah dah

Don’t you just hate love moving?

  1. Hahaa! Another one of the perks of being vegetarian! You can mix just about anything together and it tastes good. If you mix a bunch of meats together it would just be a mess and wouldn’t taste nearly the same as something like garbage pasta. :-) Good luck on the move.

  2. Haha! I’m a hoarding too. In fact, I like to do these “kitchen clean out” meals every now and then just to regain some sanity in my fridge and pantry. I hate having a little bit of everything but somehow in inevitably happens!

  3. When I moved to Charlotte last summer, I didn’t know a single person! Coming from someone who felt a bit lost for quite some time, you can reach out to me if you need anything! :)
