Food Waste Friday and True Food Confessions--Dec. 14, 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.

This Week's Food Waste

I meant to get to the rest of this cheese in a timely fashion, I really did. However, when I got it out to put in the lasagne I was making, it had blue mold in it (and not the good blue cheese kind of mold.) Darn. It had to go.

This Week's True Food Confessions

We had homemade bread and salad most of the week. To go with this was lasagne, vegetable soup, and tuna mac. Perhaps the highlight though was the seven-layer dip that Wally took to a party. Luckily he brought half of it home and we had it for dinner the next day. Depending on your layers, it can actually be pretty healthy and filling.
We had a good week and cooked at home most of the time. It was a struggle a couple of nights, but I was able to overcome being tired and distracted to actually fix pretty good meals

Okay, if we're really going to have True Food Confessions, Ward is picking up Chinese as I'm typing this and it's going to taste really good.
