Food Waste Friday and True Food Confessions--May 16, 2014

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

Okay, maybe not None, but pretty close. There was a little lettuce that went slimy before it got used and a few almonds that I dropped on the floor at work. If it had been at home, I might have eaten them anyway, but not from my work floor.  However, the squirrels and blue jays really enjoyed them. 

This Week's True Food Confessions

You may have noticed that I haven't done a food post for a couple of weeks. I stopped taking pictures for a while, so with no pictures and no new recipes, I didn't have much to post about. I'd like to say that I didn't have any food pictures because I was preoccupied with taking pictures of all the spring flowers. But that wouldn't be true. I have been distracted by other things and paying attention to our eating hasn't been that high on my list. However, all has not been lost. I've been concentrating on working more vegetables into our dishes as well as serving more leafy greens. Also, we had some fresh asparagus from Uncle Billy--nothing like it! And we grilled our first non nitrate hot dogs. I've been meaning to try them for a year or more and we finally got around to it. They were good and while I wouldn't exactly call them a health food, they're a step up from the last ones we had. We're going to be gone for a few days, and I'm not sure what we'll be eating. However, I am taking along some healthy snacks for the car.

Until next time...


  1. My in-laws brought us asparagus from their garden--a huge treat! My husband sometimes grills it--I'm not sure what he puts in his marinade for the asparagus but I love it.

    We tried nitrate-free hotdogs last year, and I thought they were pretty good. We aren't huge hotdog eaters, but in the summer ...

    1. I love asparagus raw, grilled, steamed, roasted, and canned. I just love asparagus. I'm glad that you got to enjoy some too.
