No food waste again this week! But I *almost* wasted a cup of whipping cream. My mom gave me a pint because she realized she wouldn't use it.
(I don't think I'm the only one who has food pressed into my hands because the assumption is that *I* won't waste it. I'm always glad that folks want to avoid waste, but putting the food in my hands does make avoiding waste more challenging.)
I used it for coffee for guests at Olga's dessert party and a sauce for butternut ravioli and that used up about a cup, but it has since languished in the fridge.
Last night I poured it in a measuring cup to take a picture for this post, but it poured smoothly and smelled fresh. So I asked my husband if he would eat a pumpkin pie if I made it with the questionable cream and his was an enthusiastic yes. (I have a can of the pumpkin puree that has been gathering dust since Thanksgiving which has also been weighing on my conscience.)
Once again I am grateful to this challenge for compelling me to come up with ways to avoid waste. In the past I would have thought nothing of throwing the cream away. Now we can anticipate (I hope) a delicious pie after dinner tonight.
