This Friday, I am NOT so happy to report that we wasted a lot of food.
I’ve been in one of those ‘not wanting to cook’ moods this week which translates into either eating out (which translates into upset stomachs) or just eating leftovers which in theory, should reduce food waste.
For some reason, that theory didn’t pan out this week.
We wasted about 2 or 3 bowls of the Beef Au Jus stew that I made last week. It was really good, but we’d been eating soup a LOT lately and we were just kinda tired of it. And the weather got warm, which makes me want spring food, not winter food. Excuses, excuses! 😉
Some hummus got moldy… I’m pretty sad about this since I bought it to make Greek Pita club sandwiches but then never did.
Also the cilantro that’s been on the brink for two weeks finally bit the dust.
And the kids didn’t finish this pasta, which was enough that I felt it should be documented.
Not pictured were some oats, a few rolls that sat out overnight and got hard as rocks and half a banana that was uneaten by the kiddos.
::hangs head in shame::
All of this waste means that (hopefully!) I’ll do better next week, right? 😉
How did you do this week?
