For the third week of the Waste Nothing Challenge, I had to tackle some wilting produce (AGAIN) and bread ends.
Poor bread ends! They are so neglected. Ever wonder how much bread you have tossed in the form of bread ends? You can actually use bread ends in several different ways, but this week I pulled a tricky-trick on the baby. I made toast and sliced it into strips with a smidge of peanut butter. She ate it up as if it were a gourmet meal. Loved it.
Then, I had an abundance of produce but just bits and pieces. Not enough to really make anything.
So, I chopped it up and made stir fry. I’ve said before how I love stir fry because it is so versatile. You really don’t have to sweat a special sauce either. Just get the skillet hot, add some olive oil, and toss in the vegetables. Right before the vegetables are softened to your preference, drizzle with a couple of tablespoons of soy sauce.
With meat. Without meat. Over rice. Over noodles. As a side. However you want it.
And, you rescued some produce, saving some money. You have got to feel good about that!
What did I throw out?
