Food Waste Friday

I've been participating in Food Waste Friday with The Frugal Girl for a while now; I go through our fridge (and freezer) on Friday and toss anything that has gone bad. I also take a look at what needs to be used up so that it does not go bad and try to work that into our meals over the next few days. This has really helped us to throw out less food (and so we're actually buying less because we're using what we've already bought!).

I didn't get to post a picture last week because we left town early Friday morning, and by now I can't remember what I even threw out! This week I have some hot dog that my daughter did not finish one night and the end of a loaf of homemade french bread (I am not about to pull it out of the bag because its all sorts of different colors and may in fact be stuck to the bag! gross!)

I've got a little big of chicken left to pick off a rotisserie we had earlier and then I'm going to make some stock with the carcass.
Have you gone through your fridge recently? Its amazing what you can save before it goes bad just by knowing what is hiding in the back of the fridge!
