Food Waste Friday and True Food Confessions--Dec. 7, 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. You can follow how we are doing in this endeavor by reading True Food Confessions.

Thanks to Simply Being Mom for hosting Food Waste Friday this week.

This Week's True Food Confessions

I was determined that this week would be better than the last couple and it was. We had a lovely dinner out one night and ate at home the rest of the time. We made enough each meal to last through lunch and sometimes into dinner the next day. 

Here's what we had.  Thai chicken, fresh broccoli, wild rice, lentil soup, shepherd's pie, homemade bread, and chili. Most nights we had a salad to go with these.

You'd think with this success, I'd be inspired for next week. Wrong. My mind is other places and tired of cooking. However, this is an important priority, so I'm going to give it the old college try.
