Food Waste – A potato, some turkey….and almost a whole meal!

This week we lost a potato to mold, some deli turkey and sadly almost an entire meal. I have no picture of the gross slow cooker meal.

The meal came from a blog that I’ve used tons of times and have never had a single failure with. It was sad, really. I won’t ditch the site, but I definitely will not make this again. It was an Asian style chicken dish and required a lot of soy sauce. But there was a lot of honey as well, I thought it would balance it out….I was wrong. Everyone tried it, no one ate more than a bite.

It was not very good at all. The soy sauce was just way to salty for us. It was a slow cooker meal, and it tasted burnt as well.

It pained me to toss so much chicken. Not so much because of the cost, although that is annoying…I can think of much better things to do with the money instead of wasting it on something I put in the garbage can. But the more I think of why it really bothers me to toss meat the more it hits me that the real reason is because a living thing had to die for us to eat it. Now, I’m not going to get all crazy or anything, but it’s something to think about. I mean, I wouldn’t just go take out an animal for the heck of it, and I don’t care that the animals are bred for this either…I still wouldn’t take them out for the heck of it.

So, sorry Mr. Turkey and Mr. Chicken….
