Food waste? What food waste? :) Seriously, with the crazy week we had I'm surprised we didn't have a ton of waste. But other than some parsley and a few grapes we didn't have any! I am surprised! I thought it would be much worse. I did save half a can of tomato sauce. Have you ever opened a can to use a few spoons just to end up throwing away the rest of the can a week after because it got lost in the back of the fridge? Well, my simple solution is to freeze it! I use an ice cube tray for leftover sauce:
Each cube compartment holds exactly two tablespoons. After frozen, I just keep them in a ziploc bag and add them to soups or sauces. No more moldy sauce here :)
And lately I've been cooking the same things over and over, so it was time for something new. A couple of you recently shared a few delicious ideas, so I decided to incorporate them into our menu this week as well:
Mon.- pizza night!
Tues. - vegetable soup
Wed. - grilled chicken and zucchini
Thurs. - Oven Chicken risotto (Thanks, Sharon)
Fr.- Easy noodle Stir Fry (Thanks, Rhonda)
Sat.- going out (kid got a free hamburger from a library reading program so he's getting a treat :)
Sun.-TBD (seriously, have no idea. Hopefully, have some leftovers by the end of the week :)
And what are you eating this week??
