Left over spaghetti sauce- Food Waste Friday

FoodWasteFriday
Today is the day I air my dirty laundry, or more specifically my dirty fridge. I share with you what food I have wasted by the end of the week as a way to be held accountable for my share of the global food waste epidemic. I hope to inspire you to do buy what you need for the week and perhaps in the end, live a simpler (and maybe an easier on the wallet) life! Check out the website where I stumbled upon this grand idea:The Frugal Girl

This week I seem to have tons of spaghetti sauce left over. At the beginning of last week I remember I had made a big batch of sauce, of which I used only half. Right then I should have put the remaining sauce into the freezer to use later in the month. Instead I kept saying…I’ll use it, which of course didn’t happen. I even saved some pasta but really, who likes crunchy re-heated pasta?

I had a few wins this week. First of all I did not waste any fruit or vegetables aside from the bag of apples that I bought which were already almost soft. I never really looked at the bag at the store, so it is my own fault. They will be made in to applesauce however so they will not be wasted!

I made a tasty quiche (crustless, it takes less time) with some left over stuff. I had tomatoes, onions, broccoli, roasted potatoes, bacon and sausage. I added some cheese and heavy cream and voila a meal!
