Food Waste Friday: a little bit of chicken

FoodWasteFriday
Every week, Kristen at The Frugal Girl blogs about her food waste for the week. We used to throw away an awful lot of food, so I decided to take up the challenge! Hopefully blogging about my waste will motivate me to reduce it.

It was a very good week, I think!

All I lost this week was about 1/4 cup of leftover BBQ chicken that was supposed to be for a sandwich.

We made it through all our fruit and lost no veggies this week! Oh, happy day!

Oh, and it’s also raining today. So it’s a DOUBLY good day! I can’t even put into words how good the desert smells after a good rain! It’s also blissfully cool outside — only 80 degrees! I’m taking advantage of the cool weather and doing next week’s baking today: sandwich bread, oatmeal cinnamon bread, and possibly some muffins.

On a side note, posting will be a little sparse for the next week and a half. We’re packing up to go to Los Angeles next weekend. Jim’s best friend is getting married and we’re turning it into a mini-vacation with the in-laws. There may be a trip to the beach, Disney, or Legoland in our future…

Last, but not least, one of Jim’s friends and teammates from college football died this morning in a car accident. Prayers for Clay and his family are appreciated.
