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!

It’s been a good week. Apart from another couple of homegrown tomatoes that bit the dust, there’s been zero-waste. (I’ve spared you the mouldy photo).

As there’s very little waste to talk about today I thought I’d introduce our new addition.
(The new addition – from Aldi, none the less)
Lil’ Bill, my favourite slow-cooker, has taken semi-retirement. He was completely out of the game, but with a little tinkering is back working reduced hours. Whether Lil’Bill will survive the planned kitchen declutter that remains to be seen.
Work, on it, has already started…
(Didn’t actually eliminate any books, just rearranged them!)
There are grand plans for the new, yet to be named, crockpot.
As we head toward Autumn/Fall, it’s the perfect time to cook up some oldies but goodies:
As well as some new recipes…
And that’s what I’m looking for. Some new ideas. Do you have any?
Please feel free to share below, as well as dropping your Food Waste Friday link in.
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
