In the past (when it seemed like I had more time), I posted photos of my fridge and all the food that I wasted. You can search “Food Waste Friday” and see the various blog posts on the subject.
Rest assured that just because I am not posting pictures in that format each week, I am still trying to be less wasteful with my food. I really try and buy just what we need for the week, besides bulk items for baking.
Last week was Farmer Jim’s birthday and instead of baking a cake, my daughter wanted to make him a lemon merainge pie which is his favorite. Being short on time, we bought a lemon cake at the grocery store…shudder.
Because it was close to bed time, we cut small slivers for the gang and then actually never cut into it again. Lauren spied it on the counter yesterday and asked if she could have a piece. I told her no because it had been sitting on the counter, waiting to go out to the pigs for FOUR DAYS!!
It looks pretty good for being unrefrigerated for 4 days…
I should have known better. I honestly think that if I had have looked at the list of ingredients, then this piece of fabricated food would not have ventured into my house and Jim would have had to settle for something else.
I wonder if it is made with the same stuff as Walmart Ice Cream Sandwiches.
I didn’t even feed it to the pigs. blah.
