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.
