It’s Friday Guys – time for No Waste Tastes Great
Simply Being Mum’s Friday Fridge
It’s half full!
Slight deviation, in my Friday routine, this week due to plans for today.
I did a reduced Aldi shop, yesterday, to tide us over until Monday. There won’t be much food prep and meals served up at Chez Wright this weekend. So I didn’t just want to pull my grocery shop forward a day. It would have meant food-stuffs hanging around in the fridge. Potential for waste!
Waste is forefront in my mind currently. Particularly as the item below went to waste this week.
Some food-stuffs hit harder on the food waste front.
With meat products it can be difficult to know whether you should take a chance on out-of-date items. This ham should have been consumed the previous weekend. I hadn’t noticed the date on the packaging when I purchased it. Lesson learnt.
Other ingredients I feel more relaxed about. Particularly vegetables. It’s easy to see when they have started to deteriorate, and when they are past their edible life.
Leading onto this weeks food-save. One of my all-time favourite soups is this spicy carrot recipe.
This batch I’ll be bulking up, and thus stretching it further, by including a broccoli head I have no destination for.
Once frozen, this soup will make great lunches for the forthcoming week.
Something that won’t be going to waste will be these cupcakes.
They are the reason why my post is a little later than usual this Friday. There’ll be a photo on my Facebook page over the weekend of where these (and I) ended up. Groovy Baby!
How’s your Fridge looking this Friday? Anything to declare? Or is it nice and bare? Please share…and don’t forget to drop a link in the comments if you’ve blogged about it!
