The recycling is filling up quickly
Trash/recycling pick up was Friday; we've already filled on 13 gallon bag full of recycling. This is a reflection of using packaged dry goods, as I am able to recycle all packaging.
I consolidate some of my baking supplies, noting that I still had 2 cans of evaporatd milk, which I normally would use for pumpkin pie. In the past, I've also used it to make cocoa. I looked on line, and sure enough, it can be used for pudding. So, with the addition of 1 cup of fluid milk, I made 2 boxes' worth of pudding out of it.
I have 6 individual tubs now of pudding, along with a container of Jello.
Ripe, fresh pears were teamed with the saved dregs of some sweetened cereal and the bottom of the bag, crushed bits from shredded wheat, and transformed into a crisp, substituting the cereal for the usual oats.
