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. 🙂
