What was your best improvisation?
I just returned from my mother's house. She has two refrigerators, and while I was there she dumped out about one whole fridge's worth of contents because of spoilage. It made me sad to see that much food go to waste and made me stronger in my waste not, want not conviction. My mother has never been an experimental cook- she has a few tried and true recipes that she never strays from, which means she is constantly buying ingredients to use for specific recipes that she will have no reason to use again by the time they go bad. So tell me, what is one of your favorite/ proudest improvisations? How did you make leftovers exciting enough to finish off, or what foods have you substituted to make use of what you had?
