Free Food - Accept What People Give You!
Every once in a while, someone offers us free food. Of course I take it and then try to figure out what to do with it. We made pie filling earlier this week with free cherries from our neighbor. We also made jelly. Our other neighbor offered some beets and red cabbage. I like beets, but have no clue how to use the red cabbage...but I will figure out something. I personally do not like beet greens very well, but on a limited budget, you make the most of what you get. So, I cut, sorted and cooked the beet greens and gladly offered to share them with my husband. Sometimes all that people offer is zucchini, but there are lots of great recipes to use zucchini or you can freeze it and use it for later. I do that when we have too much zucchini of our own. Accept what people give and be grateful for it. Find a way to use it. Every little bit helps.
