Whenever I have a good food waste week, it’s inevitable that the following week will be atrocious. Case in point: Last week, one questionable box of beef stock. This week, half the contents in the fridge.
Okay, so it wasn’t quite that bad.
From the top… The attempt at cauliflower crust pizza, one lone moldy corn tortilla, a smidge of whipped cream, leftover Hoppin’ Juan, and some edamame.
I can’t say I was too broken up about most of it. The pizza was just “Meh” and the Hoppin’ Juan was alright but after eating on the enormous container for two weeks, I figured it had run it’s course. There wasn’t enough whipped cream to really do anything with and the last tortilla was torn.
I was a little disappointed about the edamame, though. I will thaw out a bunch for Allison to have for snacks, but they always seem to get overlooked.
Oh, and then there was this.
I pulled out the peas to serve with dinner Wednesday night and they looked a little slimy. I rinsed them off, thinking that would fix the problem, but they just didn’t taste right, so into the compost they went.
The good news is that everything in my fridge is current. Well, except for maybe that chicken stock that I’ve been procrastinating on using… Gotta leave something for next week’s report, right?!
