Food Waste Friday 11/30

FoodWasteFriday

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 week we managed to only throw away 4 hotdogs, if you can even call these food.  Clearly this was one of Tony’s purchases.  If I ever buy hotdogs, they are all beef.  Sad that he didn’t eat them, but at the same time… ewww.20121130-151541.jpg

On a positive note, I did manage to use up some leftover rice by making fried rice for Ava and I one night.  Fried rice is my favorite way to use up leftover rice.  It’s also a really good way to use up any leftover veggies too.

I also saved half of an onion by using it up in a batch of my potato corn chowder.  Yum!

How did you do this week?

  1. Shopping at Publix for bread this week required picking up two loaves instead of one. There was a BOGO on bread. So if you buy just one you’re leaving food on the table so to speak but you still have to eat the bread. 2 loaves is too much here and some will go bad. I was meeting a friend for lunch so I brought the extra loaf which he happily accepted. Bottom line…no bread was wasted. I did good!
