Some thoughts about chicken

The Andes crew has excitedly participated in 2 Ruby’s Pantry food runs this summer. Ruby’s Pantry distributes overstock food throughout the northern Midwest, for a very low price. Occurring once a month, you show up and they give you lots of random food.

When I say “lots” and “random”, I truly mean it.

Here is a non-exhaustive list of what we have received across two times (post not sponsored by any listed companies):

  • a bouquet of roses
  • Ritz cracker knockoffs
  • Little Bites (Banana muffin)
  • A case of lemon FiberOne bars
  • Canned potatoes
  • Canned green chiles
  • Mashed potatoes
  • Frozen vegetable bean soup
  • New potatoes
  • American cheese
  • So much bread
  • Clorox wipes
  • Large bubble wands, etc.

The latest round of Ruby’s Pantry brought the biggest challenge we have ever faced: 20 pounds of frozen chicken.

It has been one week since we received the chicken, and we have now eaten about 6 pounds of it in various forms. The most recent way it has been prepared was chicken kofta, with chicken samosas in the works for tomorrow.

If you or anyone you know would like some frozen chicken, point them our way, please.

We’re optimistic we can finish the chicken before everyone leaves. Stay tuned for more chicken shenanigans!
