Food Waste Friday – 11.18.11

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

An open letter of apology to my husband.

I know how much you love hot & spicy foods, and I have a full understanding of the pride you took in growing jalapenos in this year’s garden.  Last year your efforts yielded you one pepper.  This year you loved and nurtured the plant, and in return it gave you a good harvest.  I can’t imagine the heartbreak you must have experienced when you discovered the fruits (vegetables?) of your labor long forgotten in the back of the fridge, beyond the point of no return.  I take full responsibility for not chopping and preserving them as I should have, which would have given you spicy flavor all winter long.  Please accept my sincere apology.

Yes, this week’s food waste was also an unfortunate wifely fail.  I felt terrible!  We never even ate one jalapeno from the garden.

Dare I even boast about my success?  I was home for lunch one day, and all I saw in the fridge was this.

One serving of pot roast. No sauce, no sides. Just meat.

I rummaged around a little more, and found this.

hamburger bun (I keep a supply in the freezer) + BBQ sauce

And ended up having this for lunch!

BBQ Beef Sandwich
