Food Waste Friday

Spending money wisely also means not wasting it... and that includes not wasting food.  So, each week I will document what food is needlessly wasted and report it here.  Feel free to leave me a comment with your own food waste.

Here goes...
• 1/2 cup spaghetti squash
• 1/2 container of Smart Balance "Butter" Spray (Ugh - what was I thinking when I bought this?)... it expired.

I'm really not unhappy with this week's results.  I also saved some lettuce, red potatoes, and herring that, at one time (had I not been conscious of food waste) might have ended up in the trash.  

How did you do?


  1. I have a cucumber on my table that has seen some better days and some not so hot onions.

    I plan to cut up the onions, dice and freeze the good bits.

    I may try penniless pickle recipe for the cucumber.

  2. That, to me, is the best part of Food Waste Friday. It's not so much the public outing of what I'm throwing out. It's the awareness of what I have which makes me more likely to actually find creative ways of using it up before it needs to be thrown out.
