Pin It Wow, I can't believe I just put 7/1 in the title? Where did June go??
OK, food waste. I did have some. I found a can of leftover apricot sauce for meat that's been in a fridge for way too long and started growing some foreign stuff:
And I threw away a handful of grapes that got lost in a fridge:
Total wasted: about 75c . I almost threw away this vegetable dip too because it expired a week ago:
But then I opened and sniffed it, then tried it and it was still good. The problem is that I had almost the whole tub of dip that nobody liked much. So I came up with the solution:
I thinly sliced potatoes, mixed with a dip and baked at 350F for about 50 min. Then uncovered, sprinkled a bit of cheese on top and baked for another 10-15 min. Voila, Au gratin from Frugal and Thankful Chez. It was a bit too greasy to my liking but boys licked their plates.
