Food Waste Friday/Menu

We had some food waste this week as well. Booooo! There was a couple of wasted onions that I didn't get to in time. Also, there was some wasted Spanish Tortilla that I made for my Spanish class. It was interesting. I think there are things I could have done better with it. So I'll have to try it again soon. We also had a couple of bread tragedies here in the land of Tracy. We had the tail end of an Italian loaf go wrong, and we had a few slices of sandwich bread go bad. The sandwich bread was really annoying because it was still well within its expiration date. But oh well. C'est la vive. Sra. J, if you could tell me how to say that in Spanish, I'd use it instead because I really don't know French. I'm working on the now waste. Gotta get back on the no waste Friday!

Now onward to the menu!

Due to some unforeseen events this past week, 2 meals will have to be moved to this week instead.

So, without further ado, here's the menu

Breakfasts will be cereal, muffins, oatmeal, etc.

Lunches will be leftovers, sandwiches, etc.

Suppers are as follows:

*Garlic Bread

*BBQ Ribs (carried over from last week)
*Mashed Potatoes
*Green beans

*Fish fillets
*Baked fries

*complete meal in a bag (Carried over from last week)

*Pizza day!

*Fried Chicken
*Mixed squash

Friday *New Recipe Night*
*Creamy lasagna casserole (Taste of home cookbook)


  1. Looks like a delicious menu! It is frustrating when food goes bad when it is still well before the expiration, but there is not much you can do about that.

  2. I know, it's just frustrating, because I didn't find out until I was going to make my son and I pb&j sandwiches, so then I had to scrounge something else. But it's all good, it's obvious we hadn't starved, so I managed. :) I try to keep my menu something simple and routine ( my son is 16 months old and not very experimental yet) so we have a lot of repeats, however, we're branching out in new areas, so we can figure out a more varied dinner rotation, so we're never bored with the same ol' same ol'. So far, though, my son LOVES the new stuff. YAY!
