The simplicity in this luxuriously creamy spaghetti pasta is thanks to just 4 ingredients and a hearty dose of black pepper.
“Here. Smell this. Does it smell like it’s gone bad to you?”
I HATE hearing those words in my kitchen. It means I’ve let good food go bad.
One of the things I struggle most with as a food blogger is food waste. Not of other people’s, but of my own.
Way too often than I want to admit, I find produce in the crisper that has turned into a science fair project. Or I make two or three dinner recipes in the middle of the day and with the best of intentions I save them to eat for dinner duriung the week.
And then I forget about them. Or my husband and daughter want something different for dinner. And by the beginning of the next week, those entire meals end up wasted.
I’m diligently working on getting better at that. It disgusts me how easy it is for me to disregard food in this way.
Because 1 in 7 Americans currently struggle with hunger. That’s 48.1 million people including 15.3 million children and 5.1 million seniors.
Those people don’t have the luxury of using 4 or 5 avocados to perfect their skills at making avocado roses. Or tossing the mega pack of chicken breasts in the garbage because they didn’t get around to cooking the whole package before the chicken started perfuming the fridge with that oh-too-familiar smell.
