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.
I don’t actually have any food waste from my fridge this week. That’s because we came home from vacation and got by until yesterday without really grocery shopping (we picked up milk and that’s about it). So, my fridge was pretty empty until I went shopping yesterday.
I did waste some food on vacation, though, so don’t be too impressed! We just didn’t manage to eat up every refrigerated/frozen thing we bought, and there wasn’t room in the cooler to bring it all home with us.
I think I have some freezer burnt food waste waiting to be discovered in my above-the-fridge freezer, unfortunately. I haphazardly threw a bunch of stuff in there before we went on vacation, and I think some of it didn’t fare too well. I haven’t had time to go through it all yet, but I hopefully will this coming week.
