Every Friday I recount the food I wasted during the week. I link up with The Frugal Girl for Food Waste Friday and Simply Being Mum. 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.


threw away waffle bowls!

fwf waffle bowls

This made me sad.  I love waffle cone bowls for my ice cream.  Early on in my pregnancy I was craving lots of ice cream and NEEDED these bowls.  Now that I’m not craving ice cream I haven’t had a chance to eat these recently and they’ve gone stale.  I tried to pawn them off on Robert, but he wasn’t interested.


food swaps

I cleaned out the pantry and sent several unopened food items with Tom to  his office.  I figured someone would be able to eat the food that we didn’t want.

We had a ton of clemintines at our house and I was able to send those home with a few moms from our play date group.  It was nice to get rid of those before they went bad.  I also was able to get some celery from my friend Yolona who didn’t need all of them.  I like being able to swap food with friends instead of throwing it away when it goes bad.


every last bit

Tom had a rotisserie chicken for lunch this week and I was able to clean off those bones and use the not so pretty meat in a white chicken chili.  I like being able to use every last bit of our chicken on the bone by making soup or broth.

How did you do this week? Please share!
