Food Waste Friday

Every Friday we are going to join the “Food Waste Friday” Blogger’s and post what food is inedible.  I feel frustrated when food goes bad.  We work really hard to pay for food; we have a combustion engine transportation system that gets it to our stores, and wonderful grocers who work hard on supplying the food.  It takes a lot of energy to get food from the ground to our plates, and it bothers me that at the last link on the chain of command that I have failed to get it to our family.  

The Frugal Girl at invites us to share our waste, so we will be motivated not to waste it.  Please share your gripes, so that you will be motivated to eat those leftovers, cook appropriate sized meals, and not let those veggies get ignored in the bottom drawer.

I chalk this up to having kids!  How many of us forget the toast
in the toaster oven and keep having to reheat it till it's hard as a rock!

There were also 2 individual containers of humus purchased back in September that we found fallen behind the vegetable crisper.  After 7 months they still smelled fine which is kind of scary.  There must be so many preservatives in it!  Needless to say, we composted the humus and the containers were at least recyclable.
