Not my usual food post, but I have a confession to make and I thought it was about time I admitted to it...
I am a wasteful thrower-awayer of food.
Taking up too much room in the fridge. Binned. Been sitting there for more than a day. Thrown out. Not quite what I fancy to eat. Chuck it.
It was only yesterday when I'd deposited two cooked chicken breasts, some leftover pasta, the end of a packet of cereal and some egg mayonnaise sandwich filler into the depths of the kitchen bin that I stopped to think this could be getting out of hand.
Food is my domain in the house and I buy and cook everything we eat. There is no escaping this colossal food waste is 100 million percent my fault...in fact my boyfriend often bemoans the fact the tasty morsel he wanted to snack on has disappeared with the bin men.
Aside from being a bit frivolous and OCD about the contents of my fridge, I am also terrible at overcooking and portion control may as well be brain surgery.
However, I have now decided to turn over a new leaf! I need to be saving money as well as being less wasteful so hopefully I shall have some recipes in the near future on the tastiest ways to make the most of leftovers alongside my usual cakes and bakes.
Wish me luck! And PLEASE send on any tips you have, I think I need them.
