Food Waste Friday plus Free Museums

Who doesn’t like French toast? My husband, apparently.

I made this last Sunday, from some less-than-fresh sourdough bread. I ate more than this myself, and then told my husband he could eat the rest whenever he wanted, since he wasn’t ready for breakfast yet.

Yesterday I found it, still uneaten, but apparently with one bite taken out, hidden in the refrigerator. I had no idea my husband had never eaten it. When I mentioned it, he said that he had told me he didn’t want any French toast the day I made it.

I wish I’d heard that, because I would have eaten the rest myself! It was delicious. But not that appetizing four days later.

Why am I rambling about two slices of stale, soggy bread? Because I’ve been inspired by Kristen at The Frugal Girl and her Food Waste Friday posts to waste less food. It’s better for the environment and it’s better for your wallet, and both of those things are good.

FREE STUFF ALERT: Don’t forget about Bank of America’s Museums on Us program, which takes place the first weekend of every month. That’s this weekend, so if you’re a B of A customer, all you have to do is show your debit or credit card to get in free to tons of museums across the country. Click here to find participating museums near you.

Please leave your thoughts about food waste, free museums, or anything else remotely related to nonconsumerism in the Comments section.

Happy 4th of July, everyone! I’ll be back on Monday, July 5th, with a Meatless Monday post.
