Food Waste Friday, September 2, 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.
(You will see that I had a little fun with my food waste before it went in the trash this week.)

What went bad:
Bread: Someone gave us a loaf of day-old bread. We ate a little, but didn't like it all that much. I thought I might make some croutons out of it, but it molded before I got to it. Oh, well.

Cilantro: I had a bunch of cilantro out that I had used to make salsa. I left it on the counter as I was contemplating whether or not I was going to freeze it. In the meantime, one of the cats feasted on the tasty greens making my decision for me. And yes, the cat was not supposed to be on the counter. They have very carefully learned not to do it if anyone is watching. I guess that means, "When the people are away, the cats will play."

An Onion: I reached into the bag of onions and found a rotten one. The others were still good, so one just got away from us.
Moldy bread and chewed on cilantro.

This rotten onion was not as tempting to the cat as the cilantro was.
