Food waste and a menu, week 4/14-4/20.

Pin It

First, I want to thank each and every one of you who stopped by here yesterday with your kindest comments about my Mom. I seriously have the best blogo-friends in the world!!  We are all excited for her progress and so thankful for it. Thank you, guys, for your sweet wishes and prayers!

This week is all about simplifying in the kitchen! I have so much to do that I just don't have the time to cook.I desperately need to start gardening. Unfortunately, last year I never got to winterize our garden. So it needs a lot more work than I'd like to do... Plus, we got a green house, and it's a bit bigger than the rest of the spot, so we will have to make quite a few changes there. Now keeping fingers crossed that the weather cooperates...

But before the menu, we did have some food waste. There were a couple of things I didn't save. Like this poor potato and zucchini:

We grilled zucchinis last week but this one, I think, was already going bad when I bought it. I'm not sure how I missed it but, hey, it happens. We also had a bad mango in a bag that I forgot to take a picture of.

And that's what we are eating this week:

Mon.- breakfast for dinner
Tues. - bbq pulled pork sandwiches, salad
Wed.- hot dogs, fries, baked beans, carrots
Thurs.- mashed potatoes, meatballs from the freezer, green beans
Fr.- pasta, steamed broccoli
Sat.- leftovers/TBD
Sun.- Easter dinner with the family

And what's on your menu?


  1. This picture actually scared me a little until I figured out what they were.

  2. You reminded me that I have zucchini I need to cook. Thanks.

  3. Potatoes seem to find that sort of fate at my parents' house, since we're not potato people (plantains is more of our thing). So I can relate to that lonely potato that nobody really knew what to do with... I didn't know what the green thing was, though! Very strange looking.

  4. Hee Hee! That is the funniest looking potato I have ever seen! :)
    Your menu sounds really good!
