Food Waste Friday and True Food Confessions--July 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.

Also, I am using this public forum to encourage us to eat out less which includes better meal planning.

This Week's Food Waste

Apparently, this sour cream wasn't done souring or growing mold for that matter. There was only a little left, but I had plans for it--big plans. But it had plans of its own--growing mold, so away it went.

This Week's True Food Confessions

Look, we cooked!

Despite the fact that this week contained National Drive Thru Day, we had a pretty good week. We only ate out one time as a family and that was for a special occasion. Wally and Theodore just visited their favorite drive thru three times--a big improvement.

Since we didn't eat out much, that means that we did eat at home. Zucchini was the ingredient of the week, and we had it in four different dishes. (A post is coming about our zucchini cooking when we finally finish it all.) Also, we had a family meeting to establish a better schedule for meals at home. We're hoping that will help.

Next week, we still need our menu plan which will probably come from the freezer because it's getting a little messy in there. That's my favorite kind of planning-creating with what is on hand. I'll let you know how it goes.
