Food Waste Friday – 3.4.11

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

This week, 2 things:

Fajita Veggies

We didn’t even put these in the fridge and pretend that we would find a leftover use for them.  The meat was all gone – what’s the point of just saving fajita veggies???

Shredded Lettuce

No excuse on the lettuce.  Major bummer, because it’s not cheap when you buy it pre-shredded.  I was surprised by this in the veggie drawer.  Boo.

I don’t have a super food-salvaging story to share, so this week’s success story is more of a celebration of good menu-planning.  I used a 1/2 container of leftover grape tomatoes from last week to make chicken with tomatoes, feta, and cucumbers for dinner on Wednesday.

  1. Not bad! The chicken looks really good. I was trying to think of something for dinner tonight and I think this may just be it!
