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.
Today’s waste really should have gone out last week, because it probably was bad even then. I had hopes of salvaging it, though, so I left it alone.
It’s a bit of leftover roasted chicken. I know there are 60,001 things you can do with leftover chicken, but I did none of them.
Definitely a leftover chicken fail on my part.
But, I have no other waste to report, and I don’t think there’s even anything in my fridge that’s on the food waste precipice. Yay!
