Every Friday I link up with The Frugal Girl and/ or Simply Being Mum for Food Waste Friday. I’ve been environmentally conscious about food waste since I was in college and this is a great way for me to keep tabs on what we waste in our house.
Here is how we did:
The same day I bought a 5 pound bag of clementines, my MIL brought us another 5 pound bag. Even after giving tons away at a play date, we still had too many and some of them spoiled. I wish I had found them before hand so I could have preserved them in honey for tea. I guess throwing 4 clementines away out of 10 pounds isn’t that bad.
I’m not positive we threw away a bagel, but I know someone burnt one while family was in town and it may have ended up in the trash. I’ll count it just in case.
Didn’t throw away bread!
I almost threw out some French bread and then Tom reminded me to make them into bread crumbs. Duh. How could I have forgotten about that. I’ll blame pregnancy brain. I’m super impressed that they hubby is on board with my food waste Friday challenges and helped me figure out this one.
I only had two left and was really craving them only to find out that they were moldy. They came in a 6 pack from Trader Joe’s and I’m sure they were in the fridge way too long. I definitely forgot about them until I remembered FWF was coming up.
Ate LOTS of leftovers
We had leftover BBQ for days! We also ate a ham and cheese quiche to use up the leftover ham. Holiday leftovers make me oh so happy because I don’t have to put much effort into dinner planning.
