Food waste Monday (well,Tuesday this time)

Pin It
   I was really hoping to not have any Food Waste this week until I found some nasty salad in my fridge. The picture doesn't really show it but it's pretty wilted and gross. And the pie is not my fault, I promise! We bought some frozen Sara Lee pumpkin pie for our dinner with my sister. I baked it according to the directions but when I got it out, it was liquidy on the top, so I cooked it 10 min. longer, same thing. After 25 more minutes I got it out, let it sit for an hour and it still never firmed up. It's not the first time for me to use their pies, so I was pretty disappointed. I only spent $1.99 on it after sale and coupon but it's not about the money... Our dessert was ruined!!! Luckily, my wonderful sister-in-law stopped by and brought us some cookies, so we shared it with my sister's family.

  So I would say, salad was appr. 50c and $1.99 for a pie. Hopefully, I'll do better next week!

YTD spending: $50.33
YTD savings: $28.64
Left to spend this month: $229.67
YTD waste: $2.49

  1. Too bad about the pie. Pumpkin pies sometimes don't set up. I guess even store bought ones a susceptible.
