Food Waste Friday

in Food Waste Friday

Remember last week when I wasn’t sure if I was going to have food waste?  Well, this week I am positive we had food waste.  Nothing that I cooked or bought this week was thrown out; only waste from last week ended up in the trash.  On Sunday, Mom cleaned out the fridge and threw away:
  • Squash casserole
  • Green beans (they were cooked a new way and none of us really liked them)
  • Asian Slaw (we MUST learn to make half a recipe; the full is just too much)
  • Mashed potatoes 
While not a ton of this got thrown away, there was enough to make maybe one more leftovers-for-lunch meal.  But no one wanted it.  Sometimes we cook more than what we can eat.  And sometimes everyone gets tired of eating leftovers.
I’m not that concerned.  I would much rather throw away leftovers than actual ingredients as I’ve done so many times in the past.  But, food waste is like throwing money away, something none of us can afford to do these days.  So here’s to a better week next week!
