Food Waste Friday | Fish and French Toast

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 threw out a fish fillet this week. It was awfully fishy-tasting when I served the fish, and so I knew there was no way I was going to eat it leftover (I have a little bit of a hard time eating leftover fish even when it’s really GOOD fish!), so I didn’t even bother saving it.

I have no picture of the fish, though.

I also had to get rid of a piece of French Toast that sort of got lost in the fridge for a week.

Or two.

Or three.

Let’s just say it’s been a while since we had French Toast.

I’ll be back with a photo of the French Toast shortly, but I’m going to go ahead and publish this now so that some FWF early birds can link up. 😉

You've got me completely into this food waste thing now! It's saving me so much to find ways to use up my food instead of just throwing it away! (Although sometimes we do have to do that, too.) :)

I have a question on how anyone handles "table waste"? Like when you have company over and they only eat half of their plate. My step-mom and sister are all the time coming over and will ask for something, then throw half of it away. It drives me insane! I've tried making comments about not wasting food and they just laugh. We work hard for our money and groceries aren't's pains me to see our money basically being thrown away.

I tossed smoked salmon and I felt bad because it was pricey. I always wanted to try it on a bagel so I bought some and I didn't like it. My husband didn't like it either. I figured I could force myself to eat it or I could just chalk it up to lesson learned and not buy it again.

I love the "pirouette" dangle earrings and would love to get them!
