- I had to compost all those sour grapefruit that I had picked from the neighbor's tree since I did nothing with them and they started going bad. I'm comforted by the fact that he wouldn't have picked them so they would have rotted on the tree anyway, but annoyed with myself for procrastinating so long to do anything with them. The problem is, they're always ready for picking in January and it's always when we're doing really well with our diets, lol. They're so sour to eat straight out.
- Last Sunday I used up the rest of an open bag of potato chips as a side dish to our burgers. It wasn't all that healthy but I was happy that we finished the bag without the chips getting stale, something that happens all too often around here!
- And I also finished a container of potato salad that had been in the fridge for a couple of weeks and was a few days past its "sell by" date.
- Greg and I ate leftovers for lunch every day.
I'd love to hear how YOU did this week! Feel free to post links back to your own Food Waste Friday posts in the comments.
This post was inspired by Kristen at The Frugal Girl, who started blogging about her food waste back in 2008.
