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.
First off, the randomly chosen winner of the gift bag is commenter #12, Molly F.C. Congrats, Molly! And thanks to you all for your delightful response to my giveaway. We’ll have to do something like that again soon.
Secondly, thank you all so much for your input on my guest posting question. Your thoughts have been very helpful to me…you guys rock!
Now, on to food waste.
Well, sort of, because I have nothing to report. Yay! I did have a weird avocado earlier this week (it was sort of yellow inside and had some darker streaks in it) that was no good for guacamole. So I blended it up and froze it to combine with banana puree next time I make Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins.
I’ve got a number of leftovers in my fridge right now, though, and some produce that needs to be used up ASAP, but I’ll try to get it taken care of so that I can have a repeat performance of this no-waste week!
