Pin It I really was hoping not to have any waste this week. And I was so close, so close...Until I found some tomato sauce in a fridge. Look for yourself. The picture says it all:
Not happy!! Especially because I wanted to use it tonight. Oh, well... Our fridge is actually VERY empty right now, so unless I want my family to eat peanut butter and jelly sandwiches all next week, I really need to go shopping.
But our freezer is still very full, so we'll eat out of it quite a bit this week.
So here's our menu for this week:
Mon.-crock pot garlic ranch chicken,roasted veggies.
Tues.- baked fish, brown rice, peas and carrots
Wed.- spaghetti with pasta sauce, salad
Thurs.- Scalloped Potatoes 'n' Franks (need to use up some Swiss cheese)
Fr.- pizza, fresh vegetables and fruit.
Sat.- eat out/leftovers
Sun.-soup of some sort/ sandwiches
Lara's spinach potato bake from last week (sorry for the quality of the pic. It was taken late at night). But it was SO GOOD!! Even my picky kiddos asked for seconds (and the older Kid NEVER eats spinach). Thanks, Lara!
So, my total food waste is about 50c (I don't really know the price for it because it was homemade)
