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.
I’m late! Mr. FG stayed home from work today to take Sonia to the pediatrician, so I wasn’t up as early this morning. I have more pictures to add to this post (of my fridge), but just so I can get the linky up, here’s a picture of some snow peas I found. I bought them in, uh, February.
I’ll edit the post a little later to explain how I found them!
Ok, I’m back!
Yesterday before I went grocery shopping, I decided to clean my fridge. As in, take all the drawers and shelves out and wash them kind of cleaning.
This doesn’t happen too often, so I thought a picture was in order.
Anyhow, when I took out the produce drawers and the shelf that holds them, I was very surprised to find that the bag of peas from February had fallen into the very back of the fridge. They were so far back there it would have been quite impossible to find them without deep-cleaning the fridge, in fact.
And that is how I happened to find 2.5 month old peas.
Since the bag wasn’t air-tight, the peas just dried up instead of molding, but I still felt like I wasn’t up to actually eating them, so they’re now hanging out in my compost bucket.
