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. (Thanks to Jo from Simply Being Mum for sponsoring FWF this week.)

This Week's Food Waste

Hamburger, carrots, bread

Between being called out of town unexpectedly and then being sick, I gave the refrigerator a good clean out. Unfortunately, several things went bad in my absence. After this clean out, so far, we've been able to keep up. I hope this continues, but things are still a little crazy here.

This Week's True Food Confessions

The True Food Confession this week is that cooking at home hasn't been a priority. When push comes to shove, which it has around here recently, cooking goes far down on the list of what's important. However, even with that, we did manage to fix a few things that provided us with good leftovers to have other times. We fixed a spinach pie, pasta salad, and sloppy joes. These were supplemented with green salads, cottage cheese, and frozen bean burritos. We also had sandwiches from Subway and a family meal out at a deli. We have good ingredients in the house for more cooking and ideas that I want to try. Maybe this next week I will get to some of them. I hope so.
