Food Waste Friday--April 13, 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 had another week with no waste. I like this trend. However, we did eat some pretty interesting meals the last couple of days to achieve this. Last night we had bean burritos, mashed potatoes, and cucumbers. Don't you wish you had been here?

Making Banana Peanut Butter Balls
Also, we used up bananas from the freezer that had been a save from another week. It was my older son's birthday and he wanted to make Banana Peanut Butter Balls to celebrate. We made them frequently when he was younger, but it had been several years since we had put them together.

Wally really loves peanut butter, so I was not surprised by his request. As it turns out, it was not the peanut butter he was so interested in. He wanted to relive the fun he had making them when he was eight.  

So you never know what makes a difference with your kids. It often can be the smallest things that they remember fondly many years later.
