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.
First, thank you all SO much for your comments on my quandary post yesterday. You all were almost unanimous in telling me to wait on the e-book, and I have to tell you, I feel an enormous sense of relief about taking that off of my plate (which tells me this was probably the right decision!). I just need someone else to tell me that it was!
I’ll get to work on putting together a number of Christmas-y posts this month, and after Christmas, I’ll work on writing a smaller e-book (on a different topic) so that I can get some experience under my belt and work out the e-book selling kinks before I take on the Christmas e-book project.
Now, food waste!
Last week, when we had no Food Waste Friday, I had nothing to throw out.
This week, though, I do have a couple of things.
A few sprigs of cilantro have gone south, along with part of a package of cherry tomatoes, and some leftover rice. It’s from a casserole-ish dish that I made, and I should have remembered that we always end up with too much rice (perhaps I should write this down on the recipe card, ‘ey?).
