Food Waste Friday and True Food Confessions--Sept. 20, 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

Oh, no. The horrors. We accidentally left a box of five steaks in a grocery bag overnight.  The only saving grace was that we paid Aldi's prices for them and not regular grocery store prices. The ruined steaks made the two little tomatoes that also went bad not such a big deal.

This Week's True Food Confessions

Can you guess that I only managed to get pictures of one thing we ate this week?

The week went something like this.

Saturday: Pork roast, mashed potatoes, steamed cauliflower
Sunday : Spinach lasagna, watermelon
Monday: Leftovers
Tuesday: Pizza
Wednesday: Subway
Thursday: Omelets and cantaloupe

When I list it out like that, the week was better than I thought. Most of the menu was motivated by things in the refrigerator or freezer that needed to be used up. Maybe soon, I will have a menu before the next week begins. Maybe.

Until next time...
