Food Waste for the Week
We have our first food waste to report since the beginning of this challenge. I went to New York for a long weekend and left my husband and son at home with a bunch of meals I had prepared in advance of the trip. My husband found that he was not able to keep up with all the food I had planned for them and the vegetable stew with brown rice was left behind. A few grapes and a small amount of pear jam I canned at home were also casualties this week. Fortunately, our chickens loved every bit of it and I think they wish we would waste more food.
As I've said before, avoiding food waste requires constant vigilance. We were not up to the challenge this week - but there is always the next!
