1. But DId yOU gEt HeARtbURn THe nEXt dAy???

    This is such a great goal for 2021. Mrs. Gov and I are pretty good about not wasting food. In fact, I’ve eaten things I’ve put in the fridge/freezer labeled “parsnip soup, <>”.

    The kids are another story. We are like a broken record about them always being able to have seconds, but they’re getting bigger and wanting to portion out their own food (which I always know is going to end badly). Often we’ll have a pleasant side with a meal they don’t like and they know that they don’t get seconds on the side unless they finish their main dish. So they’ll ask for a second bowl of soup just to get a slice of bread and then not eat the soup.

    Writing this comment just made my blood boil.

    Teach me your ways! I’m so tired of food waste arguments in my house.

  2. I like the food waste focus. We are mindful bur still end up tossing way too much food. We are pretty good at using up old ingredients for soups, etc.. Maybe you can also share recipe ideas that reduce food waste?
