It’s Food Waste Friday time! I was determined this week to have zero food waste because we all know that wasted food equals money down the drain. Last week, despite only having been home from vacation for less than a week, I already accrued some food waste.
This week, I’m happy so far to report less waste. My food waste consists of:
- 1/2 cup spoiled milk
- 3/4 package fresh parsely
- and 1/2 a kiwi- my 22 month old opened the fridge, took out a kiwi and smashed it with her hands. Normally I would have thrown it in the compost. But in the spirit of FWF, I decided to see what I could salvage. Here’s what she left me:
I got out my sharp knife and added what I could to a smoothie. Smashed doesn’t much matter in a smoothie, eh?
Today I’m putting a dollar amount on my food waste. Here goes:
- milk ~ .50 cents
- parsley ~ .75 cents
- 1/2 kiwi ~ .10 cents
Grand total cost of wasted food: $1.35
That’s not bad, but it SHOULD BE
