Every week, I post a picture of the food that has gone bad over the last seven days. I started doing this in March of 2008 to help motivate myself to use up my food instead of wasting it and it’s been very effective. Since it helped me so much, I invited other bloggers to join me in posting their food waste photos, and Food Waste Friday was born.
Last week I mentioned that I didn’t think I’d ever had three no-waste weeks in a row. Given the absence of a photo at the top of this post, you might think that this week is my triumphant third week, but it’s not. Le sigh.
I bought a bag of tomatoes last week and a few days ago, I noticed that one was getting a little bit squishy. So, I decided to put it in the fridge until I could do something with it, but on the way, I dropped it.
Yeah. A squishy tomato that hits a wood floor explodes and sprays tomato juice and seeds in all directions. And it is most definitely not salvageable after that.
So, that 3-weeks-in-a-row accomplishment is still eluding me, but I’m going to keep trying!
