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, 4-years on, the amount of food I waste is minimal. Every Friday, as part of my No Waste Tastes Great routine, I account for all my potential food waste as well as confessing to any items that I failed to save.
Kristen kindly asked me to host Food Waste Friday, alternate weeks and her initial invite for everyone to join in is cordially extended here!
Simply Being Mum’s Fridge Fridge
Top Shelf – The usual spreads and cheeses
Middle Shelves – Nectarines, Grapes, Cuke and Cheese
Bottom Shelf – Milk, Strawbs and Buttercream
Not a lot to report this week. The fruit and Cuke will be added to lunches over the weekend, with cheese and crackers.
There’s a smidge of buttercream left – so we’ll probably make some strawberry cupcakes with cream on Sunday.
I do have a dairy dilemma though. Top shelf there is a tub of cottage cheese and some hummus.
The cottage cheese is out of date – but unopened. The hummus is in date but opened – and has been open 6 days.
(I’m guessing my hummus is dairy?)
Oh what to do?
What would you do?
