Food Waste Photo-8.9
Sigh. I was so sure I’d have an no-waste week this week. What I have here is some tomato paste, and some ravioli with pink sauce. I actually love ravioli with pink sauce and was going to eat it shortly after I made it. But then I thought I might need it for my husband’s lunch after the weekend and so I waited. Unfortunately, I didn’t end up needing it for his lunch, and by the time I got around to eating it, it was too late.
The tomato paste is from quite a while ago. I was going to use it when I made some tomato sauce last week(it was fine then), but I forgot about it, and now it’s growing some hairy things. I’m assuming I could compost it because it’s just tomatoes and salt, after all.
Overall, though, it was a good food-wasting week. I managed again to not waste my cream(I put it into a smoothie and made some very tasty chocolate milk with it!). I modified my menu plan and made a stir-fry last night that used up a bunch of things from my fridge(a wrinkly red pepper, some green onions, a small zucchini, a mushroom, and some chicken broth). I also used up some extra milk by making chocolate pudding and used up a squash by making some cupcakes.
Still, I’d really like to have the experience of a no-waste week ONE of these times!
