Food Waste Friday: Those Five Round Sugary Things

Today (and hopefully every Friday), I’m joining The Frugal Girl and other bloggers out there in posting my food waste photos within the past week, calling it Food Waste Friday.  It is hoped that by sharing pictures of the food I have wasted, it would motivate me to reduce wastage as much as possible.  I will try my very best to participate each week, and hopefully there will be weeks where I will be able to happily report that there was 0% wastage! 🙂

I missed last week’s edition of Food Waste Friday, because there was just too much going on that I’d forgotten.  By the time I realized it was already Sunday.

Anyway, this week, I threw out 5 mini donuts.  I bought 10 from Tesco, because my kids love them, but all of a sudden, they decided they like other stuff better.  So these 5 were sacrificed.  Boo.  (I won’t force them to eat sweet things if they don’t want to)


On the flipside, I did make full use of the leftovers.  On Tuesday night, we had some roast chicken leftovers, so I made kiam chye boey the next day, which is like a stew with salted vegetables, meat, sour plums and whatever leftovers you like to put in.  The beauty about this dish is that it can keep for several days, with each day rendering a richer aroma than the day before.


On the following day, I poured in the leftover chicken soup together with the oyster mushrooms and carrots.  Yummmmssss!!!!

  1. We seem to have the same problem around here. Everyone really likes something–until they don’t. Then you’ve got too much of it around. A little frustrating, but I guess we all get tired of things.

    The Giddy Tigress says: Kids especially change their minds/interests way faster than us adults do.

  2. The soup look fantastic. Isn’t amazing how you get lots of stuff in the house that the kiddos really like but…now they don’t. Grrrr…

    The Giddy Tigress says: Yeah, tell me about it..

    I think that is a really clever way to use leftovers. I always have no idea what to do with leftovers, except to the original dish it was made for.

    The Giddy Tigress says: Yes and it tastes superb too!
