A small selection of meats at my local deli

My wife has been telling for weeks that there were going to be shortages on certain kinds of food. Not in the post-apocalyptic kind of shortage where we’d have to think about eating someone sort of shortage.

Benny never misses a meal

But more of a we’d need to not be wasteful because there isn’t a much of this as we’re used to kind of shortage. It just made me think about how much food that we waste, not just me and my family, but society in general.

After all, you don’t have to look far to hear a story about someone getting fired for letting people know that a store would rather dump it all in the garbage than to give it to local food banks.

Still, I’m optimistic about what’s coming for us in the coming month and telling my children that they should probably get that list for Santa in early.
