I often babysit for my eldest daughter for free. It can be one of the hardest things I do in the week as the combination of our children exhuasts me. However the payment in general in great.
Today I was with the girls at their house all day because they are sick. Normally I would have them here which is easier for me, but I didn't need the sickness back in the house.
Daughter works in produce at the local grocery store.
My payment today..about 60 pounds of beef, chicken, turkey and sausages stated for the dumpster. I have beef frying on the cookstove as I type and chicken in the cookstove baking for dog food. Some of this meat is recall and must be handled with great care ( gloves) and cooked well. But I'm up to this challenge to feed my beasts.
Most other days it comes it forms of browning banana's, broken bags of grapefruit or oranges, fruit and vegetables not so pleasing to the eye but still 80% good for eating.
It bothered me today, as Dearest and I seperated the meat tonight that there is so much waste in our society. And that food banks are filled with fast easy to cook, high calorie foods.
My thought anyway.
