I have experienced very little waste. Now at day 7 this is what I did not anticipate. I am buying a lot less food, okay “a lot” comparatively.
Yes, wanting to show how little I waste has led to more awareness of what I already have in my fridge/pantry when I shop. Also friendly reminders to me that there are only two of us to feed. This makes for is a bit more redundancy in our diet, but not enough to cause frustration or dinning out more that usual.
I took this focus when I dined out at well. I usually get the full Caesar with chicken when I go to lunch at Rigatoni’s. I often have a small pile of lettuce left. (Of course the chicken and croutons are gone.) I got the half salad with chicken on Wednesday for lunch. No waste, and I was satisfied, so I can do it again.
This Weeks Waste In Chronological Order:
Beet tops. I’ve heard you can cook them, but I have never ventured into “greens”. Maybe it’s time?
Mold on my Parmigiano, cut off. The rest was still good.
I forgot my tea on Thursday. *:(
Six days of compost and a potato piece that escaped frying.
Chicken guts. I gave my cat the liver when she was alive, the rest has always been waste.
