Food Waste Friday and True Food Confessions--July 19, 2013

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 knew it was coming--a big food waste week. And this was the week it finally hit. There was a little bit of cucumber and sweet potato salad that went bad because no one really liked them. Also, we go in and out of cottage cheese phases around here and apparently we went out of one right after we bought this container. I hate to see all of this waste, but we will do better next week--unless we don't. :)

This Week's True Food Confessions

We didn't have cake balls this week, but I don't have pictures of anything else.
This week's food is more of a blur than it usually is. We were gone for a few days and had some delicious food during that time. We had chicken and dumplings made for us by a friend that were done to perfection. Another time, we had my favorite hot dog sauce made by my aunt. We also had a refreshing fruit salad made by one of my cousins that was served in a hollowed out watermelon with our family name carved on the side. There was also a chocolate chip cookie competition of sorts in which there was no clear winner. However, there certainly was no loser. :) When we were home, we went out for Theo's birthday for some more good food. Another night we had a frozen pizza and Wally made grilled cheese sandwiches yet another night. Tonight there is a delicious smelling roast waiting for us in the crock pot.

So there's the food jumble for this week. At least no one went hungry. 

Until next time...
