It’s food waste friday!

A few years ago I used to take part in a Food Waste Friday post.

Originally started by Kristen; the Frugal Girl, I found it a great way to keep myself accountable.

So great, that I ended up with zero food waste each week!

However, old habits can creep back in when we take our eyes off the ball or lifestyle changes dictate.

Recently I’ve noticed the food waste at zero waste towers is on the increase so I’m going to get myself in good habits before Zero Waste Week arrives.

I’m going back to Food Waste Friday with my hands held high in surrender and I’m determined to get our bin down to a svelte sized zero again.

This week then we have:

Food waste Friday - mouldy roll

One roll with mould. Now usually I cut the mould off and eat it anyway, but this had that distinct, funky smell that my nose detected as “Stay clear!”


Ahhh, custard. But not when it’s been left out all night (mentioning no names) and you find a big fly staring at you from the rim of the jug.

Time to be dispatched…

What about you – any food waste to use up this week? Let me know in the comments below!

    Too bad about the roll, but I wouldn’t cry over the custard as it is not my favorite food.
