Food Waste Friday and True Food Confessions--Mar. 28, 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

A Tomato

I have a suspicion that this tomato was starting to rot before I brought it home. Luckily, the others in the bunch have held up. Otherwise, we were good to go this week. :)

This Week's True Food Confessions

Do you know what happens when you go to the grocery store when you're thirsty and hungry? You buy a lot of juicy, sweet fruit and a couple of vegetables for good measure. So guess what? We've been enjoying a lot of fresh fruit this week. :)

Also, I got asked an interesting question recently when a friend was seeing our redone kitchen for the first time. After the proper ooohs and ahs, she asked if I liked cooking any better in my new space. Without hesitation, I said no. However, I have been thinking about that question since then. While I enjoy being in my kitchen more, I do not like cooking more. You know how they say (whoever they are) that you should trust your first reaction? Well, I guess it's true in this case.

Do you find that your first response to something is often the right one? 

Until next time...
