In order to save money I thought it’d be a good idea to buy my meat in bulk. I went to Superstore last week and got a bag of frozen chicken breats.
It seemed like a good idea… but it’s not.
Last week I was going to make chicken for a chikcen salad sandwich so I fried up a chicken breast. When I cut up the chicken I was horrified to discover a bloody vein still in the meat. There was no way I was going to put that in my mouth.
This evening I thought maybe if I baked the chicken it’d cook better. I thought I’d bake it, put it in the fridge over night and make a nice chicken salad sandwich mix in the morning. But that’s not going to happen.
When I opened up the oven it looked as though the chicken had completely melted. I know that things on top of chicken can melt like cheese or sauce but I’ve never known chicken itself to actually liquify and melt. It looks absolutely disgusting.
But fuck, I absolutely hate wasting food. I’ve been hungry in my life and have seen others go without food. I don’t take the prospect of throwing it out lightly, but man. I don’t wanna fuckin’ eat that! I’ll go without meat for the weak. I am going to get some beans and rice tomorrow, maybe a grilled cheese and peas for lunch.
When I get groceries next time I’ll be sure to buy all my frozen meat from M&M. They are expensive, but the quality of their frozen meat is very high. I may have just wasted $20 on chicken that I haven’t eaten.
