FoodWasteFriday
No waste this week thank goodness! I think this is partly due to the excessive waste from last week. I need to figure out a happy medium from going from extreme to extreme.  Still, I’m thankful for having no waste 🙂

How’d you do?

On Friday’s, I share what food items that I have ‘wasted’ by letting spoil during the week from forgetfulness and/or neglect. Kristen over at The Frugal Girl has inspired me to publicly post in hopes of reducing waste. (Food Waste Friday is now being co-hosted every other week with Simply Being Mum – pop on over to take a peek!)

FoodWasteFriday Wah-wah-waaaaah.  Guess what guys – after doing so well, it came to a screeching halt as I noticed there was a ‘funk’ coming from the fridge. I’ve noticed my sniffer has become extra sensitive lately and something wasn’t ‘right’ in my fridge so off to investigate I went.  The culprit, the fruit drawer. When I looked into it through the glass shelf above, it looked alright. Bagged oranges that looked perfectly fine. Upon further inspection, I nearly woofed my cookies.

Found beneath the bag of oranges: bag of avocadoes (Hello, when did we buy these?!), lemons, limes, a peach, 3 apples and a pear – all beyond their prime. Juices and all.  Let’s just say that the fruit drawer got dumped into the compost and as well as good scrub before going back into the fridge. I also took the opportunity to change the baking soda.

We’ve refilled that drawer since but it has become a daily duty to examine what’s in there to ensure things don’t get shoved down and buried under new purchases…ahem DAD.   Such is life right?

How’d you do?

The only waste this week was a bag of grapes that were washed, dried and snipped into bite sized clusters and packed into an airtight container so that they were readily available for grab and go. Unfortunately this container got shoved to the back of the shelf and hidden. When I opened it, I had no doubt that there was no way to salvage them so out they went.

Also going into the compost bin – though not spoiled – will be dad’s pumpkin, as seen in my previous post about Halloween 2013
