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!
No usual fridge photo this Friday. It’s jammed packed with goodies for our camping weekend away (we’re having good weather in the UK, did you know?)
So I’ll cut to the chase with my Food Waste Friday confession;
Not so living salad, more walking dead?
My master plan failed. Having countless disasters with bagged salad I figured living salad was the way to go.
Thus demonstrating maybe we’re just not great at eating up salad at Chez Wright, however it comes.
Onwards and upwards… there is a save on the horizon for some other salad. Okay so technically tomatoes are fruit.
For my birthday I received not 1 but 2 preserving kits;
My family and friends know me so well! (so well – check out my fantastic card with a rather tasty swede on it ;-))
There’s a rumor more homegrown tomatoes may be on their way as a donation from a friend.
Time to adapt my Christmas chutney recipe for the summer. Exchange cranberries for sultanas. Simple.
**I’ve been away from my virtual home this week, normal blogging resumes Monday!**
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
