I'm not sure how I feel about this week's food waste. I threw out a bunch of strawberries, much to my dismay, because they were too wrinkly to be appetizing (well, technically they went into the compost!) I also had to throw out a couple pieces of grilled pizza. We can't seem to get the hang of this, and I think I'm going to give up. It's just too darn hard to keep it from getting burnt, which makes me frustrated which, in turn, makes me have to throw out pieces of pizza. Luckily pizza is super cheap to make, and we got a huge back of mozzarella cheese at Costco, so it's not a huge waste of money. However, waste is waste, and this needed to go in the trash, not the compost, so I'm not thrilled about it.
I also haven't been cooking much lately, which has made lunches difficult. We got 2 free dinners this week, and Geoff got 2 free lunches at work (score! Love free food!) so it's been a couple days since I last had to cook. However, next week I'm determined to get back into our routine, and I have a couple meals that I'd like to try out that should produce leftovers to carry us through lunch for the week.
How did you do this week?
