Despite giving up recreational shopping, I'm still been prey to the occasional impulse buy. Of course, all those impulses tend to be of a consumable bent. You know the type. The luminous green cauliflower at the farmers market that languishes in the crisper drawer, losing its luster with each passing day. The packaged organic sun dried tomato risotto which you figured would be good in a pinch - but that pinch never came. The oxidized fair trade, organic chocolate bar that even the ants wouldn't touch. A local dairy's raw butter - starting to smell just a tad off. The list goes on and on.
I'm often quite successful at ignoring most of my kitchen's guests but this week the fates conspired against me. Or against food waste.
