Food Waste Friday keeps me responsible & accountable for my family’s food & finances…thanks to The Frugal Girl!

This week’s food waste – here we go!
It was actually 3 peaches: Peach #1 came to work with me, and when I went to eat it I realized it was mealy, flavorless, and overall inedible. It went in the trash can at work. Peach #2 was sampled by my husband, who wanted to see what a “mealy” texture was when I told him about Peach #1. Now that we were down to only Peach #3 (pictured here), I wasn’t about to march back to Fred Meyer and demand a refund on my one, gross, tiny little peach. So into the trash it went.
We also did fondue last weekend for Valentine’s Day, and I threw away the leftover chocolate fondue since my only other option was to eat an entire vat of chocolate, which wouldn’t have been a great choice. I don’t know that this counts as food waste, but there you go.
We DID save the leftover fiesta cheese fondue. I converted our taco dinner to nachos, and used it as queso. Delicious! I will consider that to be this week’s food waste success story.
Until next Friday!
