It’s “Food Waste Friday” and I’ll be linking up my food waste today at The Frugal Girl.
Food waste wastes money. So I try not to waste food if I don’t have to. However, the quality of the food that I eat is also important to me. If it doesn’t taste good, I won’t force myself to eat it.
Recognize it? It is some chicken noodle soup. CANNED chicken noodle soup. Normally I make my own noodle soup as I use chicken stock that I make myself plus, often, homemade egg noodles. YUM! But one day I was feeling lazy, craving noodle soup, and had a can of noodle soup in the pantry so I decided I might as well use it. BOY WAS THAT A MISTAKE! After eating my homemade soup for so long, I just couldn’t stomach the taste of this canned soup. The broth tasted very salty and the noodles were mushy, slimy and tasteless. I finished my serving (after all, I needed something to dip the grilled cheese sandwich into – haha!), but tossed the 2nd serving rather than save it for another day.
Wasteful… yep! But in this case I don’t care. I see no point in consuming large amounts of sodium if it doesn’t at least taste good to me.
How did you do on food waste this week?
