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
I’m not going to give a run down of the fridge contents today. If you hadn’t noticed it’s packed to the rafters 😉
Yesterday was spent prepping for a dinner party I’m hosting this evening. My fridge is so small that it doesn’t take much for it to look overloaded.
One notable item worth mentioning is the chocolate orange cheesecake that was baked yesterday and is chilling.
I’ll post the recipe, here, over the weekend.
This evening’s menu consist of Broccoli and Stilton Soup, Chicken with prunes wrapped in bacon served with cranberry gravy and root vegetables. Finally, cheesecake to end.
I also spent yesterday baking Christmas cakes…
It’s starting to smell a lot like Christmas at Chez Wright!
Unfortunately, as it’s Food Waste Friday, it’s time for my confession. There’s no photo this week as I have already disposed of the items to make space in the fridge.
My food waste confession – a small portion of parsnip and apple soup and half a baked potato.
Not too bad, but of course I could do better!
As always I’ll leave the last word to Kristen…
“How did you do this week? If you blogged about your food waste, link us up by entering your info into the widget below. You’ll save money, reduce your trash output, and get a little publicity for your blog! And if you don’t blog, you can still share about your food waste by leaving a comment.
**I’ve decided not to include the LINKY for the foreseeable. My blog doesn’t allow links on the actual post, and being redirected to another page isn’t ideal. Please drop your link in the comments section.**
