I don’t understand all the waste. The people where I rent endlessly cook. I don’t eat any of it. The older one would get very angry. Besides I’m on strict diet. The youngest teen is a great kid, but spoiled rotten. They cook him at least three meals a day. He will often complain & not want it so they will go get pizza & breadsticks; or something else. So I’ll periodically see the cooking. Bacon; sausage; eggs; biscuits; Cajun sausage & ride; homemade meat balls; steak; pork chops; hand breaded okra; homemade pies & cookies; on & on. Sometimes the cook eats some; often not. The food sets out for hrs waiting on him to eat. Or on plates for someone to eat. 5-10 hrs later it goes in bowls in large refrigerators. Once it goes in the fridge it’s never eaten. I’ve looked for a place to stick my rice. I found sealed green ham that expired 3 yes ago; moldy cheese that expired 2 yrs ago. I threw it out being nice only to be yelled at that cheese mold is good for you. It’s penicillin. NOTE KIDS: don’t eat mold or expired food; or food that sets out or in fridge too long. As far as I can tell no one eats anything out of the fridges. They cook or buy extra. But each person cooks or buys what they eat each meal. Much excess is bought & cooked for the teen to eat on later. But he insists on new food each meal & often asks for something different than what’s cooked. I don’t blame him. If you cook a kid this is fine then it’s your fault. I hear them say that’s been setting out; or if you don’t want that, I’ll cook you something else. I’ve seen large plate of steaks go in fridge so he can eat hamburger. A week later steaks go in trash. Things only come out of fridge so new food can be pushed in. Well it’s not my money. Not my food. Not my business. But the mom got laid off. IMO she should explain to the child about waste. I’m part Native American. I was taught to respect nature. If you kill an animal you eat it. If you pull a plant you eat it. My kids eat all leftovers before anything else is cooked. No waste. As do I. I recycle what I can. I use things till they are scrap. I use ratty clothes to change oil or paint in. Once too holly I cut them into shop rags. I use grocery bags as trash bags. I keep paper & write notes on back. As I say not my business but I hope kids read this & realize farmers worked hard to get you that food. Your parents worked hard to buy it. Have respect for them & Mother Earth & don’t waste it.
