It’s 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
Quite a busy fridge?
It was a lot busier before it had its weekly scrub down and tidy!
Everything has a purpose and place just how I like it.
It made me think? It all has a purpose and a destination but is it in the right place in the fridge? Can you feng shui a fridge?
Those who regularly read No Waste Tastes Great, know I keep my heavy jars/condiments in the bottom of the fridge as it is a difficult area to access. And also out of sight can mean out of mind and I wouldn’t want to forget any imminently perishable foodstuffs such as salad, which is what I believe the bottom drawer is designed for.
An okay, (could do better) week on the waste front, all in all.
½ a carrot, a baked potato I planned to mash (oops) and after my bottom drawer clean out, some pickle is also going to waste.
I take full responsiblity.
However I don’t take total responsibility for the waste that was generated from me making this;
As I was prepping the mixture, the Hubby arrived home. So as I was elbow deep in eggs I decided to whip him up an omelette.
The black pepper to season the beaten egg got grounded into the wrong bowl.
Let’s add cake mixture to this weeks losses shall we? And let’s proportion a part of the blame to the Hubby? ;-)
As always I’ll leave the last word to Kristen…
