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.
I haven’t had the most fabulous week in the world, so my brain is too fried to come up with a lovely post title. Someone ran into my van while it was parked, which shattered the back window and dented the lift gate to the point where I will need a new one. I’ve spent a lot of time this week dealing with insurance mess, and I am now driving a rental van which is vastly inferior to my van. I mean, um, it’s helping me to really appreciate the van that I usually drive. Yes. That’s the cheerful thing I meant to say.
(I may have had some major crabbiness about this since it happened. Ahem. Usually I am awesome at finding the bright side, but it’s been kind of hiding from me this week.)
So, let’s try this: the good news is that no one was hurt and insurance is going to fix my van and hopefully it will be as good as new.
And when I get it back, I will hug it and kiss it and try never to take it for granted again.
Composted this week:
a bad avocado (so sad!)
two squishy kiwis (which, I promise you, were far more disgusting than they look in this photo) and about one cup of tomato sauce.
We ate four other kiwis yesterday, though, and I have two good avocados that I promise I will eat before they go bad.
Oh, and remember how I said you could just the busyness of my week by whether or not I had to make banana muffins?
Yeah. I had to make a double batch yesterday. =P
