I Hate Wasting Fucking Food Salad

Festive title, I know. But it’s true. I HATE wasting food! I’m sure it’s because I’m poor & when I throw food out, I feel like I’m throwing money away.  Makes me nuts!

At the moment, I’m living with my Dad.  He’s a powerlifter, so he eats mostly protein. My Dad went to the store earlier in the week & purchased some veggies: spinach, peppers, onions, cucumbers,carrots & water chestnuts. I asked him what he planned to do with the veggies & he said, “I’ll make a salad.” Now, I love my Dad, but I KNEW he wasn’t gonna cut up veggies. I waited a few days, and no salad. 😐

On the weekends, my Dad goes to his girlfriend’s. YES, my 75 year old Dad has more of a life than me. I tried to get him to take his veggies as I KNEW they would go bad soon.   He didn’t. Hence the dish I made. I give to you another BitterBitch Eats salad hack.

 

INGREDIENTS:

Bagged Spinach, Red/Orange/Yellow Peppers, Cucumbers, Carrots, Onion, Kalamata Olives, Water Chestnuts, Celery, Fresh Parsley, Grated Parmesan Cheese, Box of small Pasta,Balsamic Vinegar Dressing

Pour the spinach leaves into a large bowl, picking out the leaves that look yucky. Boil some water & cook the pasta according to directions.

Cut 1/2 of each pepper & 1/2 of the onion. Cut the cucumber into thin slices. Pur into the bowl with the spinach.

Chop the celery, carrots, & water chestnuts. Cut the olives in half..I used about 8 olives. Put into the bowl.

Once the pasta is cooked, pour it into a strainer, & rinse with cold water. Let the pasta sit for a few minutes.  Add the pasta to the spinach & veggies & toss. Add about 1/4 cup of balsamic vinegar dressing. (I use Ken’s)

Top with fresh parsley & about 1/4 cup grated parmesan.  Tasty & hearty! AND I didn’t waste fucking food! 👍👍

LIVE! LOVE! EAT! ROCK ON!
