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.
I do have a food waste photo, but first, I wanted to tell you go to go visit my friend’s Elizabeth’s blog to see the decluttering project we tackled this week (there’s a better picture of us in that post!).
On to less delightful things…
Even though I’ve been faithfully eating spinach salads at lunch, I didn’t manage to get all of this eaten. Oddly enough, it seemed to go bad almost overnight…I had a lunch salad one day, and the next day, the remaining spinach was inedible.
At least it was only a handful of leaves at the bottom of the bag.

I don’t see one, which is not surprising given that his friend is still staying here. Hopefully he’ll get one up this morning.
edit: He’s got one up now: Ice Cream!
