Food Waste Friday--May 25, 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 week we didn't have any waste, but I had to work at it a bit for that to happen. Below are some of the saves.

Apparently, no one likes this brand of raisin bread, so I put it in the freezer before it molded. The plan is to make French toast out of it later.

Look! Cilantro that isn't slimy. I bought it for one recipe where I used it, but I also added it to another that didn't call for it. Hopefully, you won't be seeing this next week as I find other places to sneak it in.

We usually have a hard time using up the rice that comes with our Chinese takeout. This time it went into a stew before the mad dash to freeze it happened. Also, this is actually where I hid used the cilantro.

We had a big watermelon that we weren't going to finish in a timely manor, so I gave some to a friend. However, I didn't take any pictures before it left, so here's a picture of the other fruit we have in the house.
