4.30.10 Food Waste Friday
Last week I mentioned I had some zucchini to use up. I did it! Unfortunately I think part of what I used it up in is going to end up being waste next week. I made some really healthy whole wheat zucchini muffins and they didn’t turn out so great. They are a bit dry, so they are edible with some butter, but still not great. I also put some in my spaghetti sauce so that used up all of it! Yippee for me!
This week, however, I do have some waste.
That is some leftover salsa from takeout last week. It’s so good, so I’m not sure why I didn’t use it up. The other is 1/2 a cut up apple that Big I didn’t finish. That will go in the compost. I should have eaten that too, but I just didn’t.
Right now we are working on some spaghetti that needs to be used up and also some black bean soup. I don’t have high hopes for the soup. It probably should already be thrown out, but I’ll give it one more day and mention it to Mr. D. It’s weird, I made the same soup a while back and we gobbled it up, no leftovers. I must have done something different because this time, not so great. Actually, now that I think about it, I used dry beans to start this one, and canned beans last time. Maybe that’s the difference?
