A few months ago my husband and I dubbed this last day of the work week Foraging Friday. It started around the time we started observing Meatless Monday (the picture attached to this post is one of our favorite Meatless Monday meals: roasted root vegetables). The premise behind Foraging Friday is simple: we eat whatever is on hand, nothing is prepared in advance, and we are each responsible for our own food.
Sound good? It does to someone like me who doesn’t like coming home after a long day at work and having to prepare a meal. Foraging Friday is the perfect way to wind down at the end of the week and to ease into the weekend.
Let’s spread the word about Foraging Friday so we can all “chillax” at the end of the week!
P.S. In case you’re foraging around for your dinner tonight and run across a box of Rice Crispies you might like to meet the woman who created the iconic Snap, Crackle, and Pop. Head on over to One Woman’s Day to read a tribute written by her daughter, Kendra Bonnett.
