Food Waste Friday – 1.20.12

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

Winter has finally arrived in Washington!  Around here, Snowmageddon means lots of time at home.  Lots of time at home means lots of time to cook, bake, and try new recipes.  Lots of cooking means no food waste because I found creative ways to use my stuff in the fridge.  Hooray!

I used up some red onion in ground turkey gyros (recipe coming up in Surviving Dinner in early February).

From a previous recipe I had some leftover beer.  I used up the beer – along with declining carrots and some bacon crumbles – in a Cheddar-Ale Soup accompanied by Alton Brown’s soft pretzels.  That was a cozy way to end a cold, wintry day!

And of course, I found another fun way to use up the afore-mentioned carrots.  Here’s to snow days!!!

    1. Thanks! It’s been fun having the time to cook a little more complex meals this week. My waitline needs me to go back to work, though…or I might have to buy new pants! 🙂

  1. I am from Washington and was SO jealous to hear that you guys got snow (my parents are still there and got 9 inches) and its been 65 degrees here in Tennessee! Love the pictures though, and that soup looks divine! 🙂
