Food Waste Friday--October 14, 2011

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.   

Here it goes for this week. 

 Forgotten Good Intentions

We did pretty well with our every day waste, so I decided that it's time to start cleaning out the cupboards. I got rid of anything that is at least a year past its expiration date. From my first two shelves, I found several unrealized recipes. The instant tea was going to go into a tea mix for gifts, the crushed pineapple was going to make a relish for the holidays, and the evaporated milk was going to be used for making holiday fudge. Somehow, the bread crumbs just got missed. So as you can surmise, last Christmas, and maybe the one before judging by the dates on the cans, was not quite as tasty as I had planned.

But, this is a new year and hope springs eternal for very tasty holidays.


  1. Oh dear, I'm trying really hard not to listen to Christmas music, and you're not helping. :-) However, you have reminded me that my cabinets need some serious work.

  2. It's so sad to waste food from the pantry! We all do it though. It'd be interesting to see what I could find in our family pantry at home! When I go home for winter break, maybe I'll do a pantry clean out of my own. Thanks for the idea!

  3. Rats! With our reno almost done I'm going to have to do this too and I'm a bit frightened. I've got a lot of stuff from my father-in-laws former house, pretty scary.


What do you think?
