Two Bags Full

I feel lucky to have friends that think of me before they leave for a long trip. Besides being able to see them before a long goodbye, they are generous enough to give me their still worthy groceries that would have otherwise been thrown away. The OO’s latest pre-long term sojourn yielded two bags full of mad goods:

-chicken stock
-goat cheese
-oatmeal
-kettle corn
-pita chips
-tortilla chips
-olives
-the lame-ish pasta that I made for us
-heavy cream
-butter
-eggs
-lemon
-Greek yogurt
-tarragon
-flour tortillas
-garlic
-scallions
-basil
-bananas
-1 1/2 orange peppers
-vanilla pudding
-hummus
-cinnamon raisin English muffins
-Kraft grated cheese

This grab bag allows me to use many things that I ordinarily don’t have in The Littlest Kitchen – heavy cream, tarragon, olives, butter. Don’t get me wrong, I love butter. As someone who has grown up eating margarine and discovered real butter as an adult, I’m a convert, never to go back to that combination of grade D milk and oil. But in the past year and a half, I was not able to finish the single stick of butter in my fridge.

I’m inspired to make a world of new dishes. Maybe a creamy soup, or a creamy chicken tarragon, the possibilities are endless. Unfortunately my fridge is not, and now it runneth over!
