FoodWasteFriday

This week’s waste = none. Apparently someone bumped the temperature control dial at the top of the fridge while putting items on the top shelf and cranked the cold factor. A lot of the fresh fruits/veggies that were presliced have been slightly erm, frozen? Or super chilled so they’re well preserved. They’re tasty to eat and totally fine texture-wise once they thaw a bit LOL For now, I’ll count it as a no waste week here!

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!)

Hmm…this week’s waste, a lonely lime and a moldy orange. I suspect they were having a ripe ole time together which is how they ended up as they did. (see what I did there? LOL)

Once in a while my dad gets into the mood and cooks things he ‘used to’ make when he had his restaurant. We had beef pot roast the previous night and I guess there was that much leftover that he got creative and whipped up his beef pot pies vs having pot roast dinner another night. Very rare.  Total surprise. He even made the dough from scratch and used shortening!  HOLY. YUMMERS!  Super flaky. Super delish. Devoured by all and there was definitely no leftovers that night.  Now if only I could get his recipe….think he’d share? 😉

Do you enjoy beef pot pie? Got a recipe to share?

No waste this week! T’was kinda easy actually – we didn’t buy that many fresh / perishable items AND we’ve been diligent on eating up leftovers. Spaghetti with meatballs for breakfast anyone? 😀
