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.
I have two small moldy ones in my fridge right now. Zucchini is one of those things I tend to buy with good intentions and then promptly forget about once I get home.
I will do better!
On the possible future waste front, I also have to tell you that I find myself in possession of a lot of tomatoes. I bought more than I really needed, so now I need to get my rear in gear and use them up before they go bad. I’m thinking some fresh salsa will be just the ticket.
Since I neglected to take a picture of my zucchini, here’s a picture just to fill the empty spot. This was at an extended family birthday party, and I was trying to take a picture of the cake. But there are so many small people in my family, a lot of my cake pictures also have children’s heads in them. 😉
