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
My mind’s been elsewhere. Can you tell?
Top Shelf – Spreads, garlic and a lone yogurt (all with life left in them)
Top Middle Shelf – Parsnips and onion
Bottom Middle Shelf – 2 Christmas puddings (slowly maturing)
Bottom Shelf – Chicken, peppers, leftover pancake mixture (pancakes for my lunch then!)
Door – Milk and OJ
Fortunately nothing in the fridge will go to waste this week. I had planned on making parsnip soup yesterday so I’d have a recipe to share today. But my mind’s been elsewhere…have I mentioned that? 😉
The puddings now have some lovely fabric to top the basins, and that’s waiting to be done also. I’ll then remove from fridge and place in a cool, dark place to mature fully. But my mind’s been…. you get the picture.
Dinner will be slow cooked Chicken Rogan Josh. I have chicken and peppers ready to go.
Just the grapes to get eaten this weekend! Deja vu …
So where has my mind been?
I’ve just received my first wholesale order for my handmade cards.
Busy busy busy!
Hence when I checked the fruit bowl, I found these;
Yup – my mind’s been elsewhere! Not good.
As always I’ll leave the last word to Kristen…
