Food Waste Friday--January 27, 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.

We didn't have any current waste* this week. However, it's been about six months since I have carefully investigated the condiments on my refrigerator door. Here's are some of things I found when I gave it a look.

Two jars of strawberry preserves. I combined these into the smaller jar.

Six jars of hot sauce. My son seems to think that we need another one every time we go to the store. I'm going to remind him to look in the refrigerator before we buy any more.

2/3 of a jar of tahini. We got this to make hummus. However, there's a lot more here than we need for our hummus making. Does anyone have any good suggestions for using tahini other than hummus?
I would like to use it up before it goes bad.

This mayonnaise was just too old, so it went down the drain. I can never seem to use up a jar even when I buy the small ones.

*Current waste--I use current waste to mean no leftovers or produce or food that we fixed went bad this week.
