Reclaiming my fridge and avoiding food waste
Clearing out the fridge . .
I started supper by placing 50-50 sesame oil-canola oil in a large, cast iron skillet and sauteeing off the rest of 1/2 an onion, 2 old carrots peeled and cut on the bias, 2 old stalks celery cut on the bias, a handful of frozen organic CSA red and green pepper strips
Cook until al dente
I then added (all leftovers): green beans, wax beans, corn, brussel sprouts in butter sauce which I cut into quarters, chic peas
Once heated through, I topped this with a few handfuls of organic baby spinach.
I then added some lite soy sauce, a bowl of intentionally prepared ahead as extra, cooked, white rice. Blend in and heat through
In the former rice bowl, I beat 2 eggs
I made a well and scrambled the eggs, finally folding the cooked eggs into the rest of my dish
