I think I'm posting in the right place. This is food related. Everytime I clean out the refrigerator, I am throwing out spoiled food. Some of it is leftovers, some was never even touched, ie, veggies, fruit, etc. What is your system to not let food go to waste? I'm tryig to come up with something so that this does not happen anymore. I really do feel bad throwing away food that was never eaten because in a way, it is money thrown down the drain, trash, or garbage disposal. Should I get in the habit of going through once a week so that I have a better idea of what is there still? or diligently plan out menus so that I only buy what we for sure will use during the week? Right now I go to the store, and buy what looks appealing veggie and fruit wise, thinking hmmm, these zuccinnis look pretty, and some soup sounds good. But then I forget they are there and a week and a half later open up the veggie drawer and there they are, covered with fuzz What works for you? thanks mamas!
