Every alternate Friday I have the honour of hosting Food Waste Friday.
Food Waste Friday was the brain child of Kristen aka The Frugal Girl.
Kristen, embarrassed by the amount of food she wasting started Food Waste Friday in 2008.
Seeing what an amazing way Food Waste Friday was in keeping a person accountable for the food they waste, and ultimately reducing that waste through being mindful, I joined 2010.
And have never looked back.
I even have my own Friday routine – No Waste Tastes Great.
Although the routine has evolved over the last 5 years, the fundamentals remain the same.
A very important part of my No Waste Tastes Great routine is cleaning my Friday fridge.
Now I say fridge. What do you say?
Last Friday while checking out Kristen’s lovely fridge, I noticed she too called it a fridge.
What do you call yours?
And how’s your Food Waste Friday? Is your fridge (refrigerator) packed to the rafters, or spick and span waiting for a fresh supply of food for the week to come?
Mines uber-clean this week. I even scrubbed away with a toothbrush on the corners. Just one of those motivated days I guess.
As for my food waste, well I do have a confession. There’d been a couple of red onions hanging around. Maybe it’s the colour of the skin but I did not see how much they’d deteriorated until I peeled them. Oops. No photo though today.
But that’s it this week. And as for having to rustle up some No Waste tastes Great dishes, I haven’t a lot of potential waste to save. There are some carrots – which easily slow cook into my favourite soup. There’s also a little pasta sauce and salad to use up – but that’s a no-brainer. pasta salad.
