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.
(At least, for the moment.)
(In the area of food waste.)
(This is a very limited sort of awesome.)
I have no food waste to report this week.
I almost thought I’d have to waste some parsley, but I made some tomato sauce last night, and I stirred in the last of the parsley.
Of course, a no-waste week makes for a boring post, so here’s a picture of some grape jelly I made last night.
It’s made from reconstituted grape juice, so don’t be too impressed. You could so make some yourself! It’s super easy.
Oh! Lisey and I did bake, but we were babysitting my niece last night, so she and I did not get a post up as planned. We’re going to try to get that done tonight, so be sure to visit us over at Baking With Lisey tomorrow!
