Food Waste Friday – 9.2.11

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

This week I wasted some watermelon.  I always keep a big container of watermelon in the fridge for an easy snack and I didn’t get to it all in time.  That was all the waste I had!

I even had a pretty good save.  My son and I had baked potatoes with grilled shrimp and cheese for dinner.  He decided to leave his cheese untouched, along with some avocado pieces that I had given him.  Now I usually don’t count his uneaten food as waste, but avocados aren’t cheap and I don’t like throwing them away.  So I wrapped up some leftover grilled shrimp, his uneaten avocado and cheese, and a bit of sour cream in a tortilla and had a pretty delicious lunch the next day!
