Food Waste Friday keeps me responsible & accountable for my family’s food & finances…thanks to The Frugal Girl!
Oh dear. Apparently, I have either stopped paying attention to my food waste or stopped caring about my public food waste confessions. This week I held 2 elimination rounds in my kitchen.
Round 1: green onions, applesauce, and crab & artichoke dip. Weak justification to make myself feel better: the dip went bad because I ran out of stuff to dip in it.
Round 2: a peach, green leaf lettuce, and a jalapeno. A jalapeno! This may have some seriously negative implications in my marriage.
Though I certainly don’t deserve to imply that I’m a food waste champion this week, I do have a success story. We had some bacon while we were camping last weekend, and had a few strips left over. Friends, this was not bacon. This was bacon. Pork, full-fat, thick-cut, and peppered. We don’t mess around when we’re eating in the great outdoors. Anyway, between the bacon, some sour cream that needed using up, and leftover cheese, we had some pretty delicious baked potatoes.
Now, somebody please help me to feel ashamed enough so I don’t repeat this next week. Thanks.
