no food waste friday

No Food Waste Friday is going to be a list of ways I managed to help eliminate food waste in my life. I try my best not to throw anything away that could safely be eaten. Here we go!
  • There was half a can of pinto beans hanging around in the fridge, so I added a couple spoonfuls to a rice mix that was doing its part of hanging around the cabinet.
  • My boss sent me home with a tray of lasagna that was an extra and though it has dairy in it, I'd rather see it eaten than thrown away.
  • A broccoli crown I had forgotten about in the crisper drawer had turned a little rubbery, but I sheared off the little green nubs and tossed them in Italian dressing along with some diced tomatoes.
  • I talked myself into using up the last of a jar of salsa (that I accidentally bought at too high a spice level for casual eating) and the last few tortilla chips. Then I found another half-eaten jar of extra mild salsa that I could've cut it with. Sigh.
  • There was some leftover cooked pasta from when I made goulash, so I threw together a little pasta salad with italian dressing and spices for a quick snack.
Food Waste Fails
  • Sadly I let a pair of nectarines sit on the counter too long and they became shrivelled and one developed a mold spot. They were tossed.
