Food waste is the single most effective way to loose money. I say loose money because if you spent hard earned money on food, and then wasted the food, you have lost the money. Now speaking for myself.....
Here are more ideas to help end food waste.
You might recall that when our son got married last June, there were carrots left over from the lunch reception. Way too many carrots for us to eat raw, so I prepared them for the freezer.
Sometimes the desire to use up food to prevent waste will in fact produce something so much better than the sum of the parts! Like this Spaghetti Stuffed French Bread.
This stuff is good! Man food if you will, but then I have not found a woman that does not like it either.....
Do you ever have a cook-out and in the end you cooked too many burgers? Next time make this delicious Homemade Beef-a-roni.
Your family will love you for this tasty dish. There is something about the grilled burger meat adding a wonderful flavor. I like it so much, I will cook extra patties on purpose!
Another idea in the "end product is better than the sum of it's parts" category. Root beer floats for a group of people can be quite a bit of work with the glasses, and scooping ice cream, not to mention the root beer foaming and running over the glass. Fun stuff for some occasions, like summer and out of doors.
Did you find a jar of jam that got shoved into the back of the refrigerator? It might even have crystallized a bit and the family has decide they would rather not eat it? Like honey, when jam crystallizes it is still fine to eat, to avoid waste, you could make this Festive Jam Loaf. Quick breads toast up nicely, when buttered or spread with peanut butter is is wonderful.
How do you avoid food waste in your kitchen? I would love to hear your ideas.
