Here is what happened with food waste last week. I’m a bit of a planner so I blog about the previous week for these posts.
We wasted an entire bag of pre-cut butternut squash. I was very upset about this one. I tried everything I could to salvage it until I realized that there was mold growing on it. I must have bought one that was old because I’ve never had it go bad so fast. I’ll have to make a mental note to check the date on the bag next time I buy this.
I ate one of these bowls of soup for dinner and I think it made me sick. We got these with some Chinese take out the previous week. It wasn’t worth making myself sick to eat it so I threw away the other three containers. I hated wasting that much food.
My lunches consisted of leftovers all week. I had some leftover mushrooms over spinach as well as a couple fried eggs over fresh cut veggies. Fried eggs for lunch are my favorite cheap and easy meal. A little sriracha on top and it’s a spicy meal.
The mushroom stalks made it into my veggie bag that I’m saving for vegetable stock. This bag is filling up pretty fast!
I didn’t do as well as last week and that made me sad. I hope I can do better next week. Keep checking back on Fridays to see how I do. And don’t forget to follow the blog on social media if you like what you see!
