Food Waste Friday – 3.2.12

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

I forgot about a cucumber from a few weeks ago. 

I found a bad apple in the fruit bowl.  That one’s totally not my fault.  We go through a very predictable 10 per week, and this one was just purchased last weekend along with the rest of the bunch.  Bummer.

Then I grabbed the cabbage to throw some in my stir-fry tonight and discovered it was bad now, too.  Bummer #2.

This week I had one [rather sneaky] save.  Last weekend I was making our yogurt for the month and got a little over confident.  I did other chores while waiting for the milk to heat up and ended up scorching the bottom, but aside from a slightly altered flavor everything else was just fine.  Not one to throw a gallon of milk down the drain, I finished the yogurt and declared that it was a “toasted marshmallow flavor.”  Apparently, that was a sufficient enough explanation to make the yogurt disappear from my fridge at the expected rate.  🙂

  1. That yogurt reference made me chuckle. Good idea. Must not have been too bad.
    I have those times trying to do too many things at once. This week I was making chocolate chip banana muffins minus the chocolate chips I forgot to put in. Ooops. They still ate them, but missed the tiny bit of chocolate treat.
