Food Waste Friday…beef stew


This week I only have some leftover beef stew to claim as my food waste. I don’t have a picture because, well, I haven’t throw it out yet (but I will tonight!) because it’s a recent decision.

When I went grocery shopping on Monday, some stew meat was on clearance (please tell me I’m not the only one who buys clearance meat!) so I bought some of that, beef broth and a couple of potatoes. We made the stew this week along with some carrots from our garden. It was good that night, though the amount of potatoes overwhelmed everything else, because I bought two when I really only needed one.

I proceeded to have it for leftovers on Wednesday and Thursday, and I wasn’t impressed either day. So, rather than (literally) choke it down one more day, I decided to call it a lost cause and chuck the rest. It just wasn’t as good as the first night. Luckily Geoff got two free lunches at work this week so that was good, but it also meant that he wasn’t choking down the stew with me! So, I’m throwing the last two or three servings away.

I might also have a bag of lettuce from when my family was here, which they bought. I need to check on that, but if it isn’t good then it’s going to the worms!
All in all, not a bad week, compared to others I’ve had.
