Throw out Thursday

September 25th, 2014 at 10:35 pm

Lots of people are posting photos on Facebook for throw back Thursday. It is interesting to see these. I haven't shared any and maybe I should get ambitious and do so.

Thursdays at our house are sort of throw out days, at least when it comes to the fridge. Except I'm not throwing things away, but pulling them from the fridge to finish up stuff from the week. I hate to throw away perfectly good food and it saves us money eating at home.

It has an added benefit because I can clean the fridge when there is less stuff in it.

Today I took soup for my lunch in a little Crockpot. I bought it at a rummage sale last year and it has been handy. Someone asked me if I got up early to make the soup and someone else replied, "No she didn't. That is probably a leftover and we love to see what she brings for lunch." Pretty cool, eh?

Do you have a day where you finish up the leftovers?

    No planned day for leftovers, but we do try to eat them up. One or two of us usually has the leftovers for our lunch the next day.

    I celebrate "Use it Up Saturday" every week (if I'm home). I go through my fridge and make a plan to use the perishables. Some get eaten, some get re-purposed, some go into the freezer for lunches. If something has to be thrown out, that's a fail!

    I don't really have a particular day I try to use up leftovers. I just pretty much eat whatever is there until its gone, then move on to something else.

    We eat up leftovers as we have them as well, but on Thursdays, it means I have to get creative with whatever is left so I can clean the shelves before we shop again. During the summer, Fridays are the lunch leftover legacy where we might have a little of this and that to finish up things.
