Food Waste Friday-1.2

It’s the first one of the year!

This picture includes two weeks’ worth of waste, as I didn’t ever get around to doing a food waste post last week, what with the holidays and all.

So, I have three things here…starting from the bottom, there’s some old french toast egg mixture. I saved it with every intention of making more French Toast, but that never happened.

In the middle is one lonely meatball. There were quite a few more than that leftover, and we ate all but this one.

And finally on the top there is a bit of leftover tomato/mayonnaise sauce that I used on some beef sandwiches I made a while ago. I just couldn’t really think of any other use for it, and so it sat in the fridge until it was too dry to use.

That’s really not too bad for two weeks, especially when you consider how much food I used to waste in two weeks’ time! Now that the holidays are over and I’m back on a more normal cooking/shopping routine, I hope to have some more zero waste weeks.

If you kept track of your food waste and blogged about it, link us up below. 🙂

The french toast dip can be used to make custard, quiche, ice cream,... Anything that uses milk + egg. I wonder if it could be frozen?

I like the food waste post idea....I might have to do that, but I am afraid of how big my pile will be initially. ARGH!

Di! You should link to your post! Every Friday when I do my post, you can enter your name and the url of your Monday post into the Mister Linky box. This way people can go directly to your food waste photo.

Good job, Steve! Just so you know, I thought I'd never get to zero either, but amazingly enough, it's happened quite a bit lately.

Mrs. Money, I heart those containers so much too. I actually was going to do a post about them. I think they help to reduce waste because they're you can see what's inside of them.
