Sausage and Cabbage Pasta; Konmari — 6 Comments

  1. I have not watched anything Marie Kondo. I have no desire to. My lifestyle is such that I have things she would toss that might not be considered as ‘bringing me joy’ but they do bring me memories and I won’t part with them. Also, her end results are almost too sparse for me. I have seen some pictures.

    I never really gave it much thought, but I realized that my frozen tomatoes don’t have that bright red color either. It’s got something to do with the fact that the companies use overripe tomatoes and the cooking and then canning process hightens the lycopene in them which is what makes them so red to start with. But, you can’t beat the taste of a fresh tomato, even if it was frozen from your own garden. And it’s not moldy which is a problem with canned tomatoes. People with mold allergies are advised not to use canned tomatoes. :/

    • I probably use canned tomatoes 2 – 3 times a year, in late spring when I run out. Totally different look and taste. As to Kondo – I think she is geared to younger people who both have money to replace the stuff they throw and don’t have the memories to want to keep it. I could do with less dusting, tho lol

    • I have never seen a consignment shop here in France, just the thrift / charity shops. Europeans, in general, have don’t have the stuff Americans do…. Could be because there aren’t closets in the old houses lol
