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.
This week, I lost a sweet potato and some chopped up red pepper. I found the mold on the peppers earlier in the week, but I froze them until I could take the picture today (which is why the container is all cloudy looking!).
The sweet potato was in the fridge instead of in the cabinet with the rest of the sweet potatoes, so it didn’t get eaten in time. I was going to try to rescue it and make some sweet potato muffins, but it was just too far gone.
