Food Waste Friday--January 20, 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. 

I didn't have any waste this week unless you count the stuff that I didn't count. Confused? That means we did well enough with the big stuff that I thought I'd see how much waste we had that was so small I wouldn't normally count it. What did that include?

Squished cherry tomato
1/2 of a baby carrot that was rotten
2 potato ends that were going bad
I actually consider these part of a success. I put the rest of the carrots and potatoes into a shepard's pie before they went bad too.

1 squished cherry tomato--This one rolled off the counter and I stepped on it when I was looking for it to pick up.

6 kernels of popcorn--These fell on the floor when the hard-to-open bag of popcorn "popped" open. 

My conclusion from this experiment, "Don't sweat the small stuff."
