Food Waste Friday


This week’s Food Waste Friday does not have any pictures, but trust me, it wasn’t pretty. There is good news and bad news in that department though. The bad news is there was a lot of waste this week. The good news is that a good chunk of it went towards starting my compost bin!

Here is what I had to throw away and my explanation!
2 slices of pizza leftover from 2 weeks ago. Oops, it somehow got forgotten.
Half a garlic bulb. I tried to use this up because I inherited it (it was here when I moved in!) but Geoff also has a huge jar of minced garlic so I’ve been using that because it’s much easier.
5 baby carrots, forgotten in the back of the fridge from before I moved in.
A few stalks of celery that weren’t bad, but I knew wouldn’t get used up before they went bad. Preemptive striking.
2 bran muffins from about 2 weeks ago. We just didn’t eat them fast enough, I guess.
Parsley, which I used a small amount of, and knew when I bought it that it might end up here.
And, finally, cheesy potato soup from at least 2 1/2 weeks ago. I’m very embarrassed that this was STILL in the fridge because it definitely needed to go.

Hopefully next week will be better. We have been doing well eating our leftovers, and have had very little recently, so I am optimistic! I’m also very excited about our new compost, so expect to be hearing more about that in the future too!
