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.
Partly because my camera battery was dead, and partly because my children broke a percussion shaker and got all the little beads stuck in my piano keys, so I had to take it apart and clean out all the keys.
Never a dull moment, I say!
So, here’s my late waste. I forgot about this half of a bread heel and it got moldy. And I have no idea why in the world I sliced this avocado, stuck it into the fridge unwrapped, and left it for a week.
Sometimes, I’m really not that brilliant.
