Food Waste Friday


After years of wasting what could have fed a small Ethiopian village, we are attempting to reduce our food waste.  I will post a photo each week of our food waste and I will link up with Food Waste Friday over at The Frugal Girl.

This is our first week of actually tracking our food waste.  It wasn’t a bad week, but this could have been avoided.  We lost a bundle of fresh organic cilantro.  It doesn’t look half bad in the picture, but trust me, it was starting to get slimy.  No bueno.20121121-195853.jpg

I don’t know why I let it get to this point, cilantro can be saved in the freezer.  I originally bought the cilantro for fish tacos, which were a-m-a-z-i-n-g!  I salvaged the last little bit I could and topped a baked potato with it.

How did your food waste go this week?
