It’ Friday Guys – My turn once more to host Food Waste Friday!
Each week since March 2008, in order to motivate her to waste less food, Kristen The Frugal Girl, has posted a picture of any food that has gone bad over the last seven days. She found this embarrassing practice so helpful, to her, that she invited other bloggers to post their own photos, and Food Waste Friday was born.
I started participating in October 2010 and have found, that 2-years on, the amount of food I waste is minimal. In fact every Friday, as part of my No Waste Tastes Great routine, I account (and devise a plan) for all my potential food waste as well as confessing to any items that I failed to save.
Kristen has kindly asked me to host Food Waste Friday, alternate weeks (when she doesn’t post herself), and her initial invite for everyone to join in is cordially extended here!
Simply Being Mum’s Friday Fridge
Not bad, even if I do say so myself…
Top Shelf is the usual spreads and cheese, plus 1 yoghurt this week – all with life left in them
Unfortunately on opening the garlic tub to check I found this:
My food waste confession this week. I’ll salvage what I can.
All that’s left is 1 courgette/zucchini, a bag of onions and the pot out of ‘Brenda’ one of my slow cookers.
What’s in the pot I hear you ask?
If you read yesterday’s post you know my parsnip and apple soup once again hasn’t turned out as hoped. This time due to lack of an onion rather than an overdose of honey!
Everything gets eaten at Chez Wright. It’s about to be blended and frozen. Luckily I have some fresh onions to hand. Amy, a reader, suggested I add an onion now. And that’s what I’m going to do. I still can’t post the recipe as i haven’t one that has been made correctly and one that I’m happy with.
Fingers crossed 3rd time lucky eh?
Apart from that I have onions, which will be chopped and frozen, and courgette.
I feel the need, the need to bake… (which iconic movie have I paraphrased that line from?)
Nom-Nom Bread here I come!
Thanks to Kristen for this recipe.
Talking of Kristen, let’s go over to her for the last word…
