Friday Buffet

Not sure how I missed this awesome photo spread of refrigerator contents, but I’m just glad we’re together now. Bonus points to the first person to find the truly bizarre item inside one freezer (hint: eek!).

Here’s a priveleged response to traylessness at Stanford (where trays are still available on request). In my opinion, there are a few legit gripes about not having trays, but this writer hits none of them. I quite enjoyed this comment in response:

I’m sorry you have to request a tray instead of being handed one. I guess you’re used to being handed things in your life. Go away.

But that’s just one viewpoint on campus… The Stanford Project on Nutrition (SPOON) more than makes up for the above sillyness with their mid-90s video on food recovery. All that’s missing is a soundtrack with period music from Alanis or Hootie. On second thought, it’s perfect.

And for more current news, SPOON recently joined the blogosphere.

On the other side of the globe, here’s one man’s take on food waste in India.

Honestly, who wastes milk on purpose? You don’t see OPEC spraying oil on the ground to keep supply at the right level. What’s that? Milk is perishable? Rrrrright. But still…

    Snakes in a freezer! :O

    But honestly, that fridge full of takeout containers is more terrifying.

    I am embarrassed to admit that a snake in the freezer isn’t all that odd to me. I’ve had a snake in my freezer before, though it spent many, many months in there before I remembered and finally threw it away (my cat killed a snake while I was out of town, so my roommate put it in the freezer so I could see it when I got back. I intended to cook it for the cat but I just kind of forgot about it until long after it was frost bitten and not fit for consumption).

    OK, but did it look like *that* snake??

    Similar, but not the same; the one in my freezer was a Burmese python, iirc (though it’s possible it was a ball python and I’ve just spaced the variant. I’m assuming it was someone’s pet that escaped into my cat’s mouth). And much smaller than the one in that freezer!
