Food Waste Friday: First, Fail

(I’m on my phone, trying (in vain, I’m sure) to convince Mary that she should continue napping because half an hour won’t cut it…but I hope to eventually liven this post up with links.)

One of my favorite bloggers, Kristen at The Frugal Girl, documents her food waste every Friday.

As I was doing a massive fridge clean-out this week, I was embarrassed by how much I was throwing away, and I started taking photos with my phone.

Terrible, huh? And I know a couple things got dumped without me taking a photo.

This month we are limiting our eating out (exceptions are if we use a giftcard and on our roadtrip), so I’m focusing on our meals at home. Hopefully smart buying and smart cooking will help improve our food waste issues.

    Check out the Fall edition of Rachael Ray Everyday (my sister gifted me a subscription so the newer one is out) Her editors did planning for a month of meals using 5-6 basics that she made in advance, froze and then used 1-3 of those basics into recipes for a month. It might help reduce waste. Just a thought. I also have a clean out the fridge cooking day where I use those ingredients in a recipe while cleaning it out. Just a thought. Cool blog. Good Luck.
