It’s not a good week for food waste at my house. I had froze a half a loaf of (store bought) bread before I went to MLA, and took it out when I got home. I ate two pieces and when I went to get some the next time, it was growing some really fabulous specimens of penicillin. Yesterday I went to get some ricotta cheese to use in a new recipe and found it was growing pink mold. A quick Google search and asking on Twitter told me pink mold is not the kind you can just scoop off. So into the trash went the cheese and the bread.
I also discovered some mushrooms I had forgotten about. I probably could have salvaged them in an omelet or a frittata, but since I left this morning to go see my best friend, they had to go. I also wasted some fried rice that wasn’t very good to begin with and I couldn’t bring myself to eat it.
Sigh. Not a good week.
What did you waste this week?
