Food Waste Friday keeps me responsible & accountable for my family’s food & finances…thanks to The Frugal Girl!
Well, here we are. Friday again. And not a single post since Monday, which had been completed and scheduled for at least a couple weeks. It’s been busy around here and I’ve been terrible about keeping up!
The good thing is that despite being busy we’ve stuck to our menu plan and enjoyed a no-waste week! In fact, tonight I even had a couple pretty good saves. I had some ricotta that was in dire need of using, so I combined it with a half container of pasta sauce, sausage from my freezer I had already browned, and a partial package of lasagna noodles and came up with an impromptu lasagna. Note to self: when the sausage is already cooked and the sauce is already made, lasagna isn’t such a chore on a Thursday! I also had a couple of rolls I made on Sunday that were moving in the stale direction. I broiled them, buttered them, and called them garlic toast. Gourmet? No. Responsible? Yes!
