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.
This chicken probably should have gone out last week, but I was still waffling on whether or not it was good. It’s some leftover BBQ chicken which I made when Mr. FG was in Chicago. I apparently way over-estimated how much I needed to prepare in his absence, and then somehow the leftovers didn’t get eaten. Nuts.
But the rest of my fridge is free of waste, and I don’t even have many leftovers lurking about in there either.
