Food Waste Friday and True Food Confessions--Aug. 2, 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.

out of several tomatoes to save them. 

This Week's True Food Confessions

A Sampling of food we enjoyed this week. 
Let's see, I'm too tired now to make this post especially witty or enlightening--and I might need more interesting subject material if I were going to do much of that. So for now, I'll give you the facts, just the facts. (Anyone out there remember Dragnet?)

--Ate out once on the weekend after I came home from working on Sunday. A good choice as far as I was concerned because I was really tired. A good choice as far as Wally and Ward were concerned because they had been hoping all day that they could convince me to go out for Mexican.

--Ate a lot of fresh cucumbers and tomatoes. Nothing better. Okay, maybe homemade ice cream is better. Or chocolate chip cookies fresh out of the oven are better. Or corn on the cob is better. Maybe I should rephrase the opening statement: We enjoyed a lot of fresh cucumbers and tomatoes this week.

--No new recipes this week, but we did try salmon burgers from Costco. They were very good. No one liked them better than beef burgers, but would be happy to have them often since they offer nutritional benefits that you don't get with regular hamburger.

 Did you try anything new this week on the food front?

Until next time...
