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.
The mushy thing on the top of my container is a pear that was beyond saving. If I cut off the bad parts, there wouldn’t really have been anything left!
And inside the container, there’s a little bit of leftover corn. Zoe would have happily eaten this, but I forgot to feed it to her. Whoops.
And lastly, a bit of milk that had gone too far south to be salvaged.
For the first time in a long while, though, I feel like I have a good handle on my fridge, so hopefully next week I’ll have a bit less to show and tell.
