This week I so wanted to have a “no waste” week. I wasn’t fully successful, but I’m not too disappointed with my efforts. I had to throw away some cherry tomatoes that were icky and a couple of slices of home made bread that smelled sour when I took them out of the bag. Some small eggplants from the garden may not make it. I’m going to try to use them today. A small amount of buttermilk that was out dated and a small amount of milk that was out dated. We really should have used that up! We were really good about using up several leftovers this week. How did you do with your food waste?

I had a better week than last week on the food waste front.
- a little lettuce from the garden
- a little tuna salad that didn’t get eaten
- a few slices of homemade bread that started to mold
- some cherry tomatoes from the garden
- a little milk that was out of date
- Some really ripe bananas were sliced and topped with peanut butter for a snack
- Some left overs were eaten up
How did you fare this week with food waste?
In an effort to be more mindful of using up food in the fridge instead of letting it go to waste, I am participating in Food Waste Friday starting this upcoming Friday 7/19/2013. This is where I will post embarrassing pictures of food that I have to throw out. I expect it will force me to rethink throwing it out if I have to be publicly accountable. If you want to participate in Food Waste Friday on your blog, just visit The Frugal Girl blog (the link is in the margin on the right, or just click on the logo). She shares the code for this logo and leads the crusade in being more mindful or our food waste.
