Food Waste Friday-I didn’t waste any vegetables…

Every week, I post a picture of the food that has gone bad over the last seven days. I started doing this in March of 2008 to help motivate myself to use up my food instead of wasting it and it’s been very effective. Since it helped me so much, I invited other bloggers to join me in posting their food waste photos, and Food Waste Friday was born.


This week, all of my waste is meat related. I have one deli slice of ham, which I forgot about (there was cheese on top of it!). A quarter of a chicken breast is inhabiting the Pyrex container (there were three, and I did manage to eat two of them). And then I have some pizza. Somehow, we got behind on eating pizza, and while these might still be safe to eat, pizza gets dry and rubbery after it’s been in the fridge for a while, and I really don’t want to eat it!

Maybe next week I can avoid wasting veggies while also managing to avoid wasting anything else.

well done on the veggies. We wasted evaporated milk this week. I was annoyed with myself because I'd even put it in a see through container, but I just watched it grow mould - why do we do that??!!

Sorta off topic, but I'm surprised that you buy pre-packaged deli meat... I find it to be much more expensive than just getting a 1/2 lb of sliced meat from the deli. Knowing you, I bet you had some great coupon for it though :-P

How did that double post get there? Kirsten, if you have the ability, I'd appreciate it if you could delete the duplicate and this post as well. Your readership thanks you.

I don't think that I have ever thrown out pizza, and we have it every Friday. I will admit thought that it is me who doesn't let it go to waste. I LOVE pizza!!!

Wasted pizza! I'll be shocked if that ever happens in this house.

We had yucky meat too. The last remains of a disappointing dinner.
