As you all know, I had an epically bad start to my week, at least as food waste goes.
Throwing away a whole chicken = not exactly a fortuitous start.
The rest of the week was as good as the start was bad, so, yay!
Remember the grapes I froze after throwing out the chicken?
Well, they’re all used up now, thanks to multiple smoothies.
(The color of this one is due to a beet, not to the grapes. Grapes don’t provide much color to smoothies!)
I had a few too many sweet potatoes and regular potatoes hanging around, so this week I made mashed sweet potatoes, mashed regular potatoes, plus potato cubes. So the potato situation is pretty under control.
Also, if you follow me on Instagram, you know I used random leftovers in scrambled eggs and salads over the course of the week.
So, my fridge is in pretty good shape right now. It’s not empty, but pretty much everything in there is new and fresh.
And my freezer is doing well too. I didn’t use up a bunch of stuff from it this week, but I also didn’t add things, which is a win in my book!
