Food Waste Friday keeps me responsible & accountable for my family’s food & finances…thanks to The Frugal Girl!
Hello, 2012! And hello again, Food Waste Friday! I believe the last time we saw each other was before Thanksgiving.
I assure you, there was waste. How can there not be during such a season of plenty? I think my diligence the rest of the year yielded a reduced amount of waste this holiday season (simply due to the increased awareness and now-ingrained natural guilt of throwing food away). But still. There was waste.
This week my husband started night classes again – 4 evenings per week. What this means for me is that I have relaxed my need to cook a full-fledged dinner every night and can instead make extra-certain nothing goes bad. Further, what that meant for the sketchy-looking potatoes in my produce pile was that they got turned into a casserole.
And – voila – no waste yet in 2012!
