The Curse of the Leftovers – Food Waste Friday the 13th Edition

Print Friendly

I haven’t done a Food Waste Friday in a while and the fridge needed a quick cleaning so here we are.

This week it was the curse of the leftovers. Normally I’m pretty good about recycling leftovers into lunches or freezer soup but I dropped the ball this week.

This week we have:

– A serving of cheesy scalloped potatoes that I reallllllly wanted to eat but didn’t because of the calorie count. There wasn’t enough to split between the kids without an argument and sometimes I will sacrifice a bit of waste to prevent an argument.

– 1/3 of a serving of gnocchi in sauce. The gnocchi was great but I wasn’t crazy about the sauce (Barilla Spicy Marinara), it was just too canned-tomatoey tasting and I really dislike canned tomatoes.

– A big old container of the most disgusting vegetable soup I’ve ever made. I’m not sure how I managed to screw up veggie soup but the broth is really icky.

So, there you have it. I’m a big fat waster pants this week.  How did you do?
