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
A good week here! (taken 6.30am – poor light!)
There’s broccoli to use up, another slow cooked soup on its way…
A few grapes and peppers – which will accompany a cheese and cracker lunch tomorrow. My crock-pot (bottom shelf) contains bolognese for dinner. (thanks to Mrs Fenton for reminding me to tell you all don’t put a crock pot in a cooker after it’s been refrigerated. In fact I never reheat in a pot – I was being lazy and popped it in rather than transferring to another container. This bolognese will be reheated in a saucepan on the hob tonight!)
Apart from that a ball of salt dough. Not to be eaten… left over from making cards for tonight’s fundraiser. The Kid’s can use up the leftovers this weekend.
30 cards finished and ready to go. However I still have 36 cupcakes to pipe and a 21st street art/graffiti cake to decorate. Feeling a little pressured…hence the early post today.
I’m hoping I can replicate these…
Better get busy!
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.** Jo
