So, I was volunteering at a food pantry last Friday... and they were going to be closed to the public for the next 4 days, so they needed to give away all of their bread and desserts.
They had piles of it. I mean, PILES. Probably over 2000 loaves.
Unfortunetly, they were not able to give it all away - clients took all that they could for their families, but there was still leftover bread.
So, about 750 loaves of perfectly good bread were thrown away. I took a few loaves home, mostly for M to make PB&J sandwiches, but... what a waste. It killed me.

- A handful of mushrooms, finely chopped
- 8 oz tomato puree
- ~1/3 cup TVP
- Fennel seeds
- garlic powder
- Italian seasoning
Sautee the mushrooms, and add remaining ingredients and simmer for ~30 minutes, until the TVP has absorbed the tomato. Serve on buns, topped with pickles and the best cheese in the world.
