My new top tip for campers is to make sure that your food storage is dog-proof! I returned to our tent on Wednesday evening to find a guilty looking, black labrador in our 'kitchen' area. Whilst we had been chatting to his owner elsewhere on the campsite, he had been enjoying a tasty snack of an entire pack of cheese, half a packet of ham and a whole pat of butter...
Unfortunately the zero waste holiday leftovers situation was short lived. On our return home, possibly due to the lack of black labradors in our house, I found a few pre-camping minor food waste fails. The most surprising of which was the end of a white loaf of bread. Stored in its paper bag, it was dry as a bone (I did warn you this was the canine edition!) but had not a single speck of mould on it. I started harrumphing about the ingredients of shop-bought loaves. In this warm weather, what on earth could have been put in it that it would last this long? Husband, however, reckons it is all in the storage. And this WikiHow on bread storage might support his argument. What do you reckon?
(And don't worry, I may have overstepped the mark with the mouldy carrots last week but I really won't be feeding 10 day old stale bread to the family!)
Food Waste Friday was dreamt up by thefrugalgirl.com, to encourage people to use up food instead of waste it.
