Hardly any food waste to report here this week, but I'm a little concerned about this Swede who has grown a head of Nordic blonde hair. Kind of.
He's sitting in the kitchen to remind me to to use him up over the weekend.
That's one big swede so the possibilities are endless. I'm thinking maybe freeze some, some in soup or veggie pasties and if I'm feeling really adventurous, Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall, my current veg guru, has a recipe for a swede speltotto.
In other food waste fun, I took the Guardian Live Better's 'Food Warrior or Food Waster?' Quiz (Click here to take the quiz). Based on my responses, this was the analysis:
Mostly Cs: Oh, well done you. You’re not perfect, but you always do your darnedest not to waste a single scrap of food. As soon as you finish eating anything, it's placed in a bowl, covered with cling film and shoved in your fridge. You can make a roast dinner last a week. You can make a box of eggs last a month. You’re more conscientious and, therefore, have more spare cash than everyone else. Chances are that being this good at leftovers has also made you unbearably smug, though, and you don't really have many friends any more. Oh well. More five-day-old risotto for you!Oh dear, a food waste Billy No Mates. At least I've got Sven the Swede to talk to...
All swede ideas gratefully received!
