Coincidentally, all my food waste begins with C.
Sorry that I don’t have any pictures this week, but each item went bad at a different time and I disposed of them before I thought to take a photo.
The first item was two clementines. They looked alright from the outside but when I opened them up, they had this weird webby look to them and I figured that couldn’t be good. They had been sitting around for a couple of weeks, so I wasn’t really too surprised.
Later that day, I composted a little leftover cantaloupe because it just didn’t taste quite right. It had also been in the fridge for a couple of weeks, so I figured it was time to go.
Then on Sunday, I pulled out half of a roasted chicken breast to make chicken salad and it was RANK. I chucked it immediately because I figured anything that smelled that bad couldn’t be good.
Then there was the broccoli rice chicken casserole that I had made last Saturday with the dark meat of said roasted chicken. It didn’t seem bad when I was making it, but after the chicken breast incident the next day, I just didn’t trust it anymore. So it just had to go.
I had also planned to go through our condiments, but just didn’t get around to it this week. I’m always so unsure of what to get rid of. Sure, we don’t usually buy/eat cocktail sauce (because on the rare occasion we need it, it’s super easy to make at home), but if it’s still good maybe I’ll use it eventually?
What say you Internet? What do you do with lingering condiments?
