no food waste friday

  • We've been making hodge podge dinners from leftovers we've acquired from various family dinners. I love leftovers and they're really stretching our grocery budget.
  • I just finished up some broccoli, cauliflower, and sweet peppers I'd had for a while. I scored two large OXO GreenSavers at the thrift shop for $3.99 each and after a run through the dishwasher and new carbon packs, I've been saving vegetables and keeping them fresh for sooooo long in these things. I highly recommend them.
  • I chopped up said sweet peppers and froze a few for future recipes.
  • Kyle had let some bananas brown on the counter so I stuck them in a bag in the freezer for future banana bread.
  • I've started saving vegetable scraps so I can make my own vegetable stock.
  • We almost lost a pound of ground turkey because I waited longer than usual to use it while it was thawing in the fridge, but I whipped up a slow cooker full of chili and used it up just in time.
  • Kyle brought home some peaches from his trip to Florida and I brought some to the office and I'm going to freeze the rest.
  • When I made a pot of beans in the slow cooker I saved the excess bean water and I'm going to use it to flavor soups.
Food Waste Fails
  • I poured out a small carton of heavy cream that I didn't use in time.
How have you saved on food waste?
