Food Waste Friday--March 9, 2012

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.
Now you see it.  Now you don't.

Ever have one of those nagging feelings that just won't go away--the ones you're supposed to listen to? Well, I finally listened to mine and got rid of some chicken stock that has been in the freezer for a few months now.

You see, I made chicken stock. I used an organic chicken carcass and giblets and lots of vegetables and spices. I simmered it for a long time. It smelled so good and I was so proud because I usually don't make stock. However, the giblets smelled a little off when I put them in. I convinced myself that I was just imagining it and they were fine. The regular meat was good and they were too. But, I just couldn't get that doubt out of my head. So for several months now, I have been opening the freezer, seeing the chicken stock, and wondering if we should eat it. Today, I finally made a decision and out it went. I already feel better.


  1. Good for you for getting rid of it. Better be on the safe side!

  2. I did this a while back when I thought something made us sick. While it stinks to throw out good food, bad food is a different story! It's not worth our health. :-)

  3. I agree! I'd rather have a little waste than a sick family.
