Food Waste Friday – 10.7.11

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

No waste again this week!  Hooray!

This week was successful primarily due to some rather creative leftover-repurposing.

I used up some chicken, feta, and veggies in an easy quiche (look for the recipe in a late-October Surviving Dinner post).

I also had a random collection of leftover grilled and baked chicken in the freezer that I was struggling to figure out how to use.  My favorite sous chef ended up combining it with leftover black beans and stale tortilla chips to make one of our all-time favorite recipes – tortilla soup.  What makes it even better is that since I already had tomatoes, jalapeno, zucchini, and chicken broth around the house all I had to buy was an onion and avocado.  Dinner for $1.47?  Yes, please!
