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.
I am reporting for both this week and last week. Last week we only lost these green beans. I was pretty upset about these since I bought them and completely forgot about them. Ava loves sautéed green beans, so they normal don’t go to waste. I put them in the bottom drawer and forgot about them. I can’t even remember how long they were in there. Once I noticed they were there I thought I would incorporate them into a pot of soup, but once I got them out of the bag I realized that they were too far gone. As you can see, some of them had mold on them. Bummer.
This week was much better. The only food waste I have to report was completely accidental. Tony made a quesadilla the other night as a midnight snack and used half of an avocado. Well, he forgot to put the other half in the refrigerator. By the time I found it the next morning it was a brown mushy mess. Boo. It’s very rare that an avocado goes to waste in our house. They are one of Ava’s favorites and a staple in my diet.
How did you do this week?
