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 3-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
It’s a soup and salad ensemble, this Friday.
Top shelf holds the usual spreads and cheeses.
Moving down, there’s mackerel, tomatoes, grapes, one pepper and a handful of baby salad leaves.
This’ll rustle up a nice salad to accompany the Saturday-night homemade pizza dinner.
Have I mentioned we’ve been working our way through Breaking Bad on Netflix?
I’ve developed a nacho craving whilst watching it.
In last Friday’s grocery shop I impulse purchased guacamole, sour cream and salsa. The Hubby and I will be indulging in some cheese topped nachos, again this week, as our Saturday night treat.
The Greek yoghurt is still hanging around, but is good for another week yet as it hasn’t been opened. The plan is to top my muesli with it over the weekend.
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
