Food Waste Friday - Mother Load

So this week I have managed throw away:

Quart of Fruit
1/2 a Quart of Soup
Quart of Cut Vegetables
Spinach & Chicken Quesadilla
Bag of apples
More peaches
4 Slices of uncooked bacon
One whole cucumber

The first four items were given to me and most likely would have been thrown away regardless. But I could have refused and maybe they would have gotten eat. But not likely. I did manage to salvage one of the cucumbers. Half was used on a salad the other was thrown into a jar with some vinegar and seasonings... maybe my pickles will taste good. I did unearth some strange variety of yellow squash that went into a frittata.

Overall, this week was the mother load of my reported food waste. Yuck!

  1. We all have a bad food waste week now and again. At least you are conscious of it and will work to minimize it in the future.
