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.
So, my food waste picture has unfortunate lighting. Oh well.
These are some grilled onions and peppers that lived in my fridge for too long, which is really quite sad because I do like them leftover. It was just a case of having too many good leftovers all at once, I guess.
I also found a bad clementine in the bag shortly after I got home from the store, and one of the oranges in my fridge got moldy.
Those got composted promptly, though, so I have no photographic evidence of that waste.
Things are lookin’ pretty good for the upcoming week, foodwaste-wise. I’m quite on top of my leftovers, and my produce is all still fairly young (I get nervous when I have a bunch of aging produce to deal with at once!)
