Food Waste Friday--February 17, 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.
This was the week for green waste. First there was the green jello that I made for Ward when he needed something mild to eat. He swore that he was going to eat the rest of it, but it has been in the fridge for almost two weeks. I think it's time to go. Next there's the green Shamrock Shake from McDonalds that Theodore purchased. Apparently, the mint flavor was too strong for him so he'd didn't finish it. Also there's the green vase with flowers in it. Oh, wait. That's not waste.* I just think they're pretty. I prefer to have no waste, but at least this week, we're not wasting anything that is really good for you.

* I guess there's a whole discussion to be had about cut flowers and waste since they will eventually be thrown away, composted or whatever. I don't know about the rest of you, but sometimes I need to learn to relax and just enjoy something without thinking too much about it. I try to do this with cut flowers. I am especially enjoying this bunch because the cats are leaving them alone. Usually they chew them with several messy results.
