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.
So, last week I was a little worried about how I was going to do with food waste this week, as I had a lot of leftovers and perishable food in my fridge.
Happily, I was able to deal with all of it, and I have no waste to report this week! We ate leftovers and froze some food to use later, so this post is fabulously picture-less.
And because I did so little shopping this past week, we’ve managed to eat through a lot of food in our fridge and cabinets, which makes me happy. There’s nothing like a week of minimalist grocery shopping to make us eat the odds and ends that are hanging around our house!
