It’s Friday Guys – time for The Frugal Girl’s 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!

Which was quite fortunate really.
Simply Being Mum’s Honey, Mustard Parsnip & Apple slow cooked soup
…didn’t quite work out as planned. It still got eaten, of course!
And I’d hoped to post a soup recipe yesterday. Which I did. But not the one I had envisaged.
The carrots saved the day. I opted for a firm favourite.
A true Autumn/Fall warmer!
However, it wouldn’t be Food Waste Friday without a confession. I’m not having the best run on the food waste front of late.
…whilst waiting for me to pull my finger out and bake my
Over to Kristen for the last word, as always…
