Food Waste Friday and True Food Confessions--Dec. 6, 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


There was a can of pineapple that got shoved to the back of the refrigerator and lived there until we discovered the smelly contents. Turns out the can has quite a complex history involving three households, brisket, and 1 1/2 months of time. Ask Ward about it sometime if you want to know the complete story.

This Week's True Food Confessions

Look! I did actual cooking this week in the new kitchen. During the refrigerator clean out, I made some tasty vegetable soup to go with the homemade whole wheat bread. I'm not sure what we ate the rest of the week, but it paled in comparison to this meal. :)

And speaking of new kitchens and construction, we're so close to the end of it, I can almost taste it (pun intended). The work on the living room floor SHOULD be done on Monday with another week and a half of floor curing before we can move everything back in. Yea!

The work continues.
