Hmm, local grocery store asked me if I still wanted to work there as I mentioned some days back. If I were to work there I think you get a discount if you shop there for being an employee. Maybe would have been a good idea. But idk what the job would be like and if it is tolerable, and it is further away

 

Unfortunately idk what I'm doing wrong with foodstamps. Last time I tried to buy ingredients to cook real food instead of just stocking up on ramen and tv dinners, my foodstamps only lasted a week and a half and then I had nothing but cereal and rice for the rest of the month and had to get food from a charity

I think making food yourself is only cheaper if you're buying stuff you can get in bulk for cheap, otherwise if you're just picking fruits and veggies off the shelves I imagine that always adds up to more expensive

Long ago when I made vegan stews out of kale and broccoli (recipe called for mushrooms but I still had my crippling mushroom fear at the time) it was pretty cheap I think. It tasted like uh... 7/10. maybe 7.5. I don't have the kind of pot to make that right now though

 

I need to look at that recipe though but I threw it away. it was like 140 dollars worth of food but all I remember buying is ham, kiwis, mushrooms, and stuff to make mushroom soup. maybe some greek yogurt

 

Buying in bulk is cofusing, I didn't really buy in bulk but I struggled to eat everything fast enough before it going bad. I had chip chopped ham and a thingy of ham, like a round block of it, idk what you call it, chopped up. I made omelettes and ate the plain ham as well every day and it went in about a little over a week. Idk what I spent the rest of my foodstamps on. Some of it to buy drinks at the grocery store, which is probably over priced

 

I need to buy stuff to cook with like a new reasonable pan with a lid and one of those giant pots to make stew in. Oh, I almost forgot I bought a slow cooker and hav'tused it yet. I odn't know what to make with it. I wanted  make chicken and dumplings, but I'm intimidated by how huge it is. I didn't expect it to be so big. It can't really fit on my small kitchen counter with all the other stuff that is on it. Hm. I should have got a 3.5 qt or something instead of a 6qt or whatever it is, but most recipes seem to call for 6qt. I guess it would be food for a long time at least, if I freeze some of it or something

 

I don't know if my ground deer meat went bad or not but I don't think I want to risk it. Google says ground meet only lasts about 1-4 months in the freezer, unless it is vacuum sealed, then it can last 1-3 years, and idk if it is vacuum sealed or not, it is in a tube of some kind. It's been about a year though so it could be bad anyway. Google also says meat stored at 0 degrees fahrenheit can last forever, but I don't think my freezer is that cold

I don't think they let you take the food they throw out though

 

but our local grocery stores sometimes put food on sale when it's getting old
(moreso though if you work there you can take whatever you want when it has to come off the shelves, but yeah it'd be nice if random people could do that in general, but that hurts THE PROFIT)

i mean, they don't want you to, but it's not like they have someone guarding the garbage 24/7. they don't really want people taking their trash, but they don't really care that much. you can totally get away with it

I guess that's how Eara survived while homeless

 

Tayomi just lives in caves and eats whatever creature she comes across if she happens to be hungry, including humans, but the human typically provokes her otherwise she stays away from them

 

I imagine tayomi eats once every few days, but when she eats it is like an entire bear or something at once

Bre have you ever gotten food from the trash of a grocery store? Can you do that with restaurants too? I imagine restaurants throw out food literally daily

Dumpster diving is not illegal here but basically impossible. The big markets have all waste containers locked inside and unreachable and the small local store has built a spiked fence around  their container.  Too many idiots digging through the trash and spreading it all over the neighborhood. This is why we can't have nice things. The only thing we managed to get in recent years were lots of potted and garden plants which were just left outside the market for people to take.

 

You gotta do your calculations and not get tempted into buying overly fancy ingredients, TB. Obviously buying bulk can be cheaper but unless you have lots of people cooking together or lots of storage space in your freezer a lot of stuff will inevitably go bad. So yeah that takes some planning. I'm unfamiliar with general food prices in the US but here what we cook is much cheaper that buying a comparable processed product, espacially if frozen. Or have the food delivered. But this can easily tip if you buy the wrong products at the wrong place at the wrong time.

 

I don't know how cold your freezer is but I don't think the vacuum seal makes any difference regarding edibility. The only thing that will happen is that the unsealed meat will dry out over time. But that doesn't mean it can't be used anymore. Our fridge has -18°C which is 0°F and meat last forever. If your fridge has significantly less then yeah that might be a problem. Buying expensive food and then having to throw it away is generally your worst-case scenario. Still happens to us sometimes.

probably different in the US, nice ingredients are way more expensive than processed slop in our and other people we knows' experiences

 

I think the cheapest thing here (aside from actually buying big bulk bags of stuff if you can) is processed food that you still have to make yourself, like bags of dry noodles and powder you boil in milk-water, like I just made today

i have not, but i know people who have. i don't generally buy my own groceries but once i become more independent i'll probably look into dumpster diving more

 

i don't know about restaurants, but i believe you can with some. obviously, how practical it is depends on how the specific location deals with its waste. i believe that lots of restaurants let employees take home food that they can't sell, which would mean significantly less food waste
