I've been doing pretty good with food waste in the past few weeks/months and even around Christmas but today definitely topped it all, in a bad way!
First, I threw away this:
Believe me it looks better than it tasted :( At the beginning of last week I decided to make some stuffed shells and realized too late that I was pretty much out of cheese. So I found a recipe online for a "healthier" version - well, they looked and smelled pretty good but tasted gross :( I actually got terrible heartburn from them too, not sure why. Nobody liked them at all, even spruced up with some extra cheese on top. The whole recipe was off. So they were sitting in the fridge until...well, until they didn't look or smell that good anymore :( So here goes our first food waste.
And second was this:
Half a container of brown rice :( When we re-did our PANTRY, I put everything into nicely sealed containers. But we had too much rice left, so I just left it in this cereal container that is not made to close as tight. And I found bugs in it this afternoon. I'm not a happy camper right now :( SIGH...
And this week we are eating:
Mon.- chicken curry, brown rice (from a different container!), veggies
Tues.- broccoli cheese soup (bumped from last week), homemade bread
Wed.- salmon, couscous, baked zucchinis and carrots
Thurs.- breakfast for dinner
Fr.- meatballs, mashed potatoes, salad
Sun.- vegetable soup, cheese quesadillas
What's on your menu this week?
