I find it useful to have with me a few sealable freezer-bags when I go out at this time of year.
One day I was out for lunch and buffet-supper events.
I came home with half a turkey leg, three sprouts, two crunchy roast potatoes, some other vegetables, a wee sausage wrapped in bacon, a slab of Christmas pudding, half a meringue, a few small pork pies and a handful of sandwiches (someone else grabbed the spare mince pies – damn).
All this food would have been binned, had I not ‘rescued’ it.
Waste not, want not, say I.
