It’s been so long since I’ve done a food waste post! We are just going to pretend that the past few weeks haven’t happened and I didn’t throw out SO.MUCH.FOOD. We are starting with a blank slate this week.
First up is a box of vanilla wafers. I don’t remember buying them and have no idea how long they have been in my pantry. I found them last night when I needed a clothes pin to keep the cat food bag closed. I tried them and they were incredibly stale. I guess I could make banana pudding, but I don’t have any of the ingredients other than the wafers. And there is a lot of them left. I like banana pudding, but not enough to eat an entire 9×13 pan of it. So these went into the trash.
I also wasted about a quarter of a loaf of apple cinnamon banana bread. I was really excited about the recipe, but it did not turn out how I expected and the flavor wasn’t great. I just kept ignoring it until it started to grow some mold. I threw it out and now I’m trying to figure out how I’m going to force myself to eat the second loaf that’s in the freezer.
What did you waste this week?
