Those of you who’ve been watching my food waste progress for a while know that cilantro is a major downfall for me. I can never seem to use up an entire bunch before it goes bad. Well, this week I’m making a dish that calls for cilantro so I had to buy some. It was on sale for $.50 a bunch at my grocery store, which was great, but what wasn’t great is that all the bunches were enormous. The picture doesn’t really show it, but there is a LOT of cilantro there, more than I could ever hope to use in a week.
I’m thinking of asking if anyone at my church needs cilantro…maybe I can just give half of it away, and then I won’t have to worry about using it all up. And if that fails, I might offer it on freecycle…maybe someone in my neighborhood needs cilantro this week.
So, hopefully there will be no cilantro in my food waste photo next week. Speaking of food waste photos, I should tell you that I don’t have one this week because I wasted nothing. Woohoo!
I very nearly wasted an egg yolk, some sour milk, and part of a beaten egg white, it occurred to me that I could throw all three of those things into a batch of whole wheat pancakes, so that’s what we had for lunch today.
