Every week, I post a picture of the food that has gone bad over the last seven days. Why do I do this? Because in March of 2008, I finally got fed up with the amount of food I was wasting, and I thought that showing my waste to other people would motivate me to use up my food instead of wasting it. Because this often embarrassing practice was so helpful for me, I invited other bloggers to join me in posting their food waste photos, and Food Waste Friday was born. If you’re not a blogger but still want some food waste accountability, feel free to participate by leaving a comment.
I’m sorry for the delay in getting Food Waste Friday up this morning…my computer was behaving poorly and I was having difficulty uploading my photo. I’ve got it all fixed up now, though.
If you are a fan of The Frugal Girl on Facebook, you know that I was struggling this week to use up some leftover salmon. I ate some plain, and then I added some to my scrambled eggs.
I ate my eggs and salmon, but I hated it. And after forcing my yucky breakfast dish down, the thought of eating any more salmon was really starting to make me feel nauseated. I might even need a couple of months to recuperate before I buy any more to cook for dinner!
So needless to say, I didn’t manage to eat the one last piece of salmon.
The good news is that I didn’t have any other waste this week, though.
