Food Waste Friday – 5.4.12

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

WHAT?  I have a blog?  Apparently so!

I wish I could tell you what I’ve been up to the past month and a half but…well, I have no idea.  Life, I guess.  No excuses.

But here we go again!  Today I combed through my fridge and here’s what I found.

blue cheese, cilantro lime dressing, veggie dip, and frozen strawberries

Let me give you a little bit of background.  On Monday Rusty & I began a 2-week…I don’t know…”cleanse,” for lack of a better word.  We’re re-setting our pallates by avoiding carbs, sugar, and salt for 2 weeks.  So this means we eat (unseasoned) meat and vegetables day in and day out.  It’s not so terrible, though I would have told you differently on Tuesday.

Anyway, these are the things that wouldn’t be good anymore after 2 weeks, that we couldn’t feed Conlan, or may have already gone bad.  I would like to (proudly) note that there isn’t any produce that’s gone bad.  I’ve mentioned our produce pile before, but with this eating plan we’ve turned it into a huge produce mountain.  And so far, we’ve eaten it all and nothing has gone to waste.  Tune in next Friday to see if we get through another week!

[Edit:  While I was prepping all of tomorrow’s food this evening I found half of a moldy beet in the fridge.  But since I have pretty strong negative feelings about beets, we’re going to call that little happy surprise a food waste win.]
