Free Meals

April 12th, 2022 at 07:36 pm

I picked up my first batch of free frozen meals today, and I had one for lunch. It was "Mediterranean pork" with Brussels sprouts and escalloped potatoes. It was pretty much like hospital food, before hospital food improved. I'm not complaining, though. Now I know, having tried it, that I need to repurpose it. Today's meal, for instance, could have been used to make stir fry and potato soup.


I was surprised to receive, in addition to the meals, fruit cups, graham crackers, juice boxes and saltines. Those will find their uses as well. I will make a fruit salad tonight, with the free fruit cup and some I have on hand. I do think this will eventually make a dent in my grocery spending.


Yesterday's baseball game did go on as planned. The weather cleared up, and it was actually pretty nice. DS and I arrived late, however, because first of all, the traffic was horrific, and second, the field at this particular location was tucked away in a place where you couldn't see it from either the street or the parking lots. We ended up walking a lot just hoping to stumble upon it. Which was fine -- I needed more steps! The game was lost, but GS1 played well, and that is what is really important to us.


There are games all week, because so many were cancelled due to rain.  Another one today, but it's a home game, so there will be no trekking around.

    Hmm...I wonder if they do that at the senior center here. I'll have to see. That would really help my mother with her expenses. And if they are frozen meals she'd be using the stove less and the microwave more.

    LR, I'll bet they do. It's a federal program and the distribution centers are usually senior centers.

    LotsofIdeas, I deleted your comment, not because it wasn't good, but to get rid of the misspelled site name, which apparently went someplace not good at all. Yes, I love Penzey's spices! I have eleven of them right now!
