Food Waste Friday: Success and Mooncake Boxes

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 thought I was done for this week and that I would be shaming myself in front of the whole world with my food wastage for the week, but when I checked and double-checked, I really had no waste at all.

The packet of thyme leaves I thought would have turned bad still looked all right (think I’ll be using them for roasted vegetables next week).  The golden sweet potato buns I made did not constitute waste, I thought, since I had frozen them in the freezer.  And the sole lemon I had in my fridge, I’m putting slices of ’em in my drinking water…love it!

So I am proud to say that there is no waste this week.  Yay me! 🙂


I did want to show off the mooncake boxes I had collected this year though.  The Mooncake Festival date proper will be on Monday, and these boxes came with every 4 mooncakes we bought.  Depending on the brand of mooncake, you get a different and unique design each time.  I’ve always found these boxes so intricate and pretty to look at, and I wanted to be sure I kept them just in case I want to use them to organize stuff later.


So far I have used some pretty mooncake boxes to store my kids’ jigsaw puzzle pieces and collectors’ cards.  I’m still undecided as to what to put in these boxes I’ve got this year.


Of course, collecting these beautiful boxes aren’t the only fun thing to do.  Eating these sweet mooncake delicacies in a variety of colors was also a sweet, sinful yet yummy affair!
