I may be a few minutes early…
But I threw out good food today.
A kind person had left a casserole for us. We ate about half, rather cheerily grinning at each other over a meal we didn’t have to cook. No one said the obvious, until I was clearing up.
“I’ll just pop this into the freezer,” I said.
“Hmm, OK. You might as well, I know I won’t have it for lunch.”
A quick poll around the living room. It was not a hit. So out it went. (I thought it too salty and fatty for the dogs.)
So I still feel guilty, two days later. It was a good three cups of food left, not stale or too old, just unliked. Would I have saved it if I had paid for it? Maybe, but it needed some fixing before I would have served it again. Maybe not. It may have been past redeemable in my eyes, with a discernable salt flavour.
We also have very full recycling boxes. A birthday party did not generate as much trash as I thought (despite disposables) but we cleaned out a closet and the shed, with a stack of cardboard to go.
How did you do this week in waste?
