Food Waste Friday – 3.9.12

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

We had much less waste than I expected.  Conlan turned 3 this week so I thought we would have a bazillion cupcakes go to waste.  Turns out we ate them all throughout the week and didn’t have any go to waste.  Win?

When I was making the cupcakes it turns out the batter went further than I expected.  I had enough “leftover” batter to bake a round cake, which I froze (along with the leftover frosting) until later in the week.  Then I defrosted everything and Conlan & I made cake pops to take along to daycare!  They were my first attempt – and I was assisted by a VERY enthusiastic little boy – so they are far from perfect, but they sure were a fun weeknight project!  The were also a great way to use up extra cake & icing.

I found some apple slices in the fridge that needed to disappear, and it would appear we didn’t go through as many sandwiches as I expected us to.  It’s a little more painful when it’s homemade.
