Food Waste Friday | No sighing this week!

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’m pleased to report that I have no waste this week. Yay! I do, however, have a couple of wrinkly jalapeno peppers that need to be used. I had more than this, and I sliced, seeded and froze those. I suppose I could do that with these last few peppers, but I think it would be a while before I got around to using that many froze hot peppers (we’re not big hot pepper eaters here).

Any suggestions? I was thinking of making some Jalapeno Poppers, but they seem to be a fair amount of work, and I’m less than inspired after looking at some recipes.

if you want you can also chop up the peppers (finely and in small amounts if you have children) and put them in a meatloaf or spaghetti gives the dishes a little kick but not to much that you will need a extra glass of milk with your meal to cool your mouth off.

Well, if the jalapeno cheese bread is a no go, just dice them up fine and make some salsa (also available at pioneer woman...second to last post I believe!)

Jalapeno poppers are tasty... but the work involved always makes me think twice about them.

I've skipped out on Food Waste Friday for a couple of weeks, so I'm prepared for a big waste post, hopefully next week. *sigh* It's tough when you're busy and things get pushed towards the back of the fridge. I will conquer food waste though! At least that's my goal. :-)

I'm passing along a bloggey award to you! Hope you can play along!

I would make fiesta cornbread with the peppers.

It seems like I always find something that has gone bad in my fridge too. I buy eggs (the perfect protein source), but by the time I get around to boiling them or wanting to cook them, they go bad...

Opps, that reminds me I need to finish off that taco meat!!!
