Each week I participate in Food Waste Friday hosted by The Frugal Girl. Monitoring my food waste and taking a picture of what has gone bad each week keeps my accountable and motivates me to remain vigilant in my goal to minimize, if not eliminate, food waste in my household.
This ice-cream started to sublimate. My daughter tried scraping off the crystals and eating the ice-cream beneath, but it didn’t taste or feel right.
I prevented waste by freezing leftover chili in 2 cup Pyrex bowls. They are the perfect size for my teenage son to pull out and reheat for lunch.
I learned a new trick this week by asking the deli clerk how she made broccoli slaw. She told me that they saved the stems after the broccoli florets have been used for something else. Then they peel the stems with a vegetable peeler to get rid of the hard outer skin and then julienne the flesh beneath. So now I can make a delicious salad out of something that would have normally gone into the compost bin. ( I used the dressing for my Nutty Broccoli Salad and added other julienned vegetables).
