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.
You didn’t think we’d skip Food Waste Friday because it’s a little ol’ shopping day, did you?
And some spinach.
So, those are my failures.
I ended up with some leftover gravy (we’d eaten all the chicken), and some leftover broccoli (which made me nervous…I wasn’t sure who would eat it!).
But then I realized that gravy is sort of like cream soup, and broccoli is good in cream soup. So, I just combined and heated the two, and voila! Cream of broccoli soup.
It was really quite tasty, and I was delighted I came up with a way to eat two difficult-to-use leftovers.
