I haven’t been dumpstering since the start of covid, but my friend saved this nice lamb leg for a year in his freezer. I rubbed it with mustard and herbs and roasted it and made some peppers stuffed with cheese and rice to go with it.
It’s been a couple weeks and I’ve been gradually making my way through the stuff in my freezer, getting more confident that we’re pretty much always going to be able to find what we need when we need it, so I was ok with not taking everything I wanted. But I still wound up with… Read More April 29, 2019
We skipped dumpster diving last week because there was so much left over from the week before, and my freezer was still pretty full, but we were both running low on fresh food so we went out and found a great deal of desserts, vegetables, cheese, and some meat.

Last night we found a great deal of food very quickly and were home in around an hour and a half, but the volume was so great that we were up as late as usual sorting and rinsing it. I took less than a third of the total home (I always tell myself I should… Read More February 4, 2019
I was originally planning on going out alone tonight. My dumpstering partner was going to stay in because he’s going out of town next week and subletting his place while here’s gone. I’m staying here, and there’s no trash on Christmas. I would have had plenty of food for the next two weeks, but almost… Read More December 17, 2018
