Food Waste Friday, 7-22-11, Vacation

It's time for Food Waste Friday, when the Frugalgirl encourages us to post pictures from the previous week of wasted food from our household. This accountability hopefully will help us to be more careful with our food and maybe save some money. 

Niagara Falls
Here it goes for this week.

We have been on vacation for a week now in the Niagara Falls and Toronto area. We have been doing pretty well with our food waste by utilizing our cooler. Instead of listing our waste (because we're not keeping track of it), I have a few observations.

--Tim Hortons--Why is it that everyone in my family has heard of this Canadian chain but me? They are like a Dunkin Donuts and located on every street corner. We have enjoyed their wares several times ourselves and like their breakfast sandwiches.

--Speaking of breakfast, the hotel we are staying in serves baked beans for breakfast. Not a bad idea, just something new to me.

--And speaking of new, we have also discovered poutine, another widespread Canadian dish. It is basically French fries and cheese curds covered in gravy with whatever else you want to throw in. Tasty, but a steady diet of it would be too much for me.

--Also, we visited the birthplace of Buffalo wings at the Anchor Bar and Grill in Buffalo. And yes, they were good!

--Time to get ready for the day's adventures. Hope that it doesn't make it up to 102 degrees F like yesterday. The heat is putting a damper on some of our plans.

Note: See the rest of our vacation fun by reading my daily posts.

  1. I'm enjoying your trip - catching up after returning from Boston where I discovered poutine! I loved it but oh man, definitely a perfect marriage of fat plus salty deliciousness!
