Change the World Wednesday – 10th Jul

I have a little more than 10 minutes, can I do it? Can I make a CTWW post.

The cacophony of dogs continues unabated each morning.

But on with the post…

CTWW is a redo on food wastage.

This week, in addition to avoiding food waste, please share your ideas for how we can all eliminate it in our lives. The idea here is to share tips, strategies, recipes, etc. … anything that will help us “Use it Up” rather than send it to a landfill.



Head over to the Zero Waste Week site, register and check out all the great information.



Spread the word and encourage your friends and family to join the movement! Let’s ban food waste forever!!

Hmmm, a triple barreled one.


…and that was the good side

I have failed already. This morning I burnt two slices of toast beyond redemption, in fact they were beyond recognition.

On to the compost heap, good quality charcoal.

Really, I already try to eliminate wasting food, of course there are mishaps in the kitchen, the result of blogging while cooking… usually. But I throw little food out; even the T-bone from today’s lunchtime steak (it’s a ‘beef’ week) fed the dog next door; after being thrown at the intruding cat from the other next door that comes in and eats Lixo’s cat food – multipurposing. 🙂

On Sunday I used all my bread crusts, saved in the freezer, and made a wonderful bread’n’butter pudding.

Anything that gets chucked from my kitchen goes on the compost heap, so it’s not exactly wastage. The only things I discard are stuff that would become mouldy like cooked stuff, and very little of that goes out, because I am a terror for left-overs.

Anyway, that’s my ten minutes worth, time to toddle off to work.

    A very well-spent 10 minutes, AV! Bread n butter pudding, huh? Sounds interesting! Sounds like a recipe that Mrs. Green would love on her resources page: 🙂



  2. I don’t think I’ve ever seen toast burned quite like that. 🙂 Like you I tackle leftovers quickly, something ingrained from childhood.



  3. […] Small suggested, in a comment, that my Bread’n'Butter Pudding sounded great. (Last week) […]
