Food Waste Friday--April 6, 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.
Food Waste Friday, again. How did it sneak up so quickly on me? Despite this lack of awareness, we had no waste this week. Yea! I think that means that the no waste effort is becoming somewhat of a habit. My older son and husband now look in the refrigerator to see what needs to be eaten and my younger son plans menus based on the ingredients we already have. A good team effort.

Now next week if I have a lot of waste, don't remind me of how well I thought I was doing. I will just ignore you and pretend all is right in the waste world.


One of the things we did this week to help with the waste was use up some potatoes and celery in a delicious potato ham soup. Link to Wally Makes Soup if you want to see the details.

  1. Great job! I can't wait for that no waste week here.

  2. Congrats on no food waste! I'm pretty sure you'll do just as well next week too. You are so great at using everything that needs to be eaten soon!

  3. Yay!! No food waste. That's awesome. And your soup looks great. Soup is a wonderful way to use up a little bit of different things.
