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 bought two avocados recently and only managed to use up one. And the remaining avocado is sort of mushy. I rarely use avocados, so I’m low on ideas. Will it still be good for guacamole? Or is there some other way I can use it? Can I throw it into a smoothie, or will that taste weird?
As far as other waste goes, I don’t have anything to take a picture of (my fridge is delightfully empty). But I feel quite certain that I composted some sort of produce earlier in the week, and I can’t for the life of me remember what it was!
So, I wouldn’t chalk this up as a zero-waste week, but it wasn’t a disastrous week either.
And hopefully you all can help me save my avocado from becoming a casualty!
