It wasn’t the best week for food waste. This week we wasted a bowl of a failed crock pot recipe. Sigh. It had red sauce and pork in it, but also pasta. Geoff insisted that he’s put pasta in the crock pot before, but I wasn’t so sure. Well…I’m still not so sure.
We both had a bowl the night we made it, but it just wasn’t that good. I’m especially disappointed about this because of the pork. Well, live and learn, anyway.
The other thing we wasted was some chocolate pasta. When our families were visiting in August they bought this pasta in Seattle. It’s delicious, and we had it with vanilla ice cream and a nice blackberry sauce that Geoff made. Yum!
Anyway, this pasta sat in our pantry for months, obviously, just pushed to the side. Recently it somehow got pulled to the front, and I actually looked at it a couple says ago, thinking I’d make it when we have company tonight. Unfortunately, on Tuesday morning I opened the pantry door and knocked the bag out, and the pasta fell all over the floor. The floor which, in that particular spot, isn’t very clean at the moment (don’t judge). Geoff tried to help by running water over it (he wasn’t thinking because I was yelling at him for the pasta that I dropped) which obviously ruined it.
I think the thing that makes me the saddest is that I was finally going to use it.
Hopefully this week is better.
