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!).

Well, I do not have a picture this week, but I did have to get rid of 2 of the apples we picked last weekend. One must have gotten bruised in the transport home, and the other served as a meal (or two) for some sort of little critter. I really could have salvaged more of the apples if I'd dealt with it earlier in the week...

We have a ton of leftovers in the fridge right now, but I'm pretty happy about that situation because it means less cooking for me this weekend! I've been having feet swelling issues, especially when its time to cook dinner each night, so yay for leftovers!

  1. I think leftovers are the greatest thing ever!! One, it means I don't have to cook something brand new that night, and two, I feel like I'm stretching a meal and getting my money's worth! The past few weeks I've really been into getting whole chickens or big cuts of beef and slow-cookering them and then I have leftovers for 2 or 3 days! Love it! :)


What do you think? I love hearing from readers!
