So. I have been busy painting cabinets, at least most days this week (when it’s not raining!), which means that some other things around my house have been falling apart.
And that means that I’ve had some food waste casualties. In the two weeks since I last hosted a Food Waste Friday, I had to get rid of a sausage, a few slices of ham, a teeny bit of tuna salad, and two bad mangoes. However, the mangoes were kind of not my fault…when I got them home from the store, it turned out that they were the bad kind of soft, not the ripe kind of soft.
I have saved some things, though. The last of my organic spinach from Aldi went into a smoothie.
I made a batch of banana chocolate chip muffins to salvage some funky bananas.
And when I found this pear in my fruit drawer, I was going to toss it into the compost bin.
But I discovered that hiding underneath the ugly outside was some surprisingly firm and delicious pear. So, I ate it, and only had to compost the stuff I peeled off of the outside. Yay!
Hopefully by the time next Food Waste Friday rolls around, cabinet painting will be a distant memory, and I’ll be more on top of things around my house.
