Food Waste Saturday

No waste this week! Oh yes, victory is mine...
Noah and I were a reclusive pair this week, didn't venture out much due to the drabnabbit snow. Plus, Noah had a little cough and runny nose. So, we were home playing card games, watching Alvin and the Chipmunks (the show- haven't seen the movie), and apparently eating up all our leftovers.
I almost let a jug of grape juice go to waste, but luckily I saw a post over at The Frugal Girl's blog on how to make Grape Jelly. Hooray! Grape Jelly! I made it today. It was easy peasy.  I just keep my laptop right there on the kitchen counter and follow instructions. I love the internet.

Notice how the label says, "Madona's Pumpkin Butter"? That jar is from when I rescued my Halloween pumpkins from becoming food waste too. And that was some awesome stuff, if I do say so myself.

Have you signed up for Crunchy's Food Waste Reduction Challenge? Have you checked out how Kristen or Angela try to prevent food from being wasted in their homes?

I hope the little one is feeling a little better today.

I love the colour in those jars. I don't drink much grape juice. the last time I had it was in November and I made a non-alocholic mulled wine with it.

Do you have a link to the original recipe for the grape jelly, i'd like to bookmark it should I ever have any. Many thanks. PS I'll be going over to check out the Waste Reduction Challenge too, its something that I do, but always love reading how others do it in their daily lives.

Hi there mangocheeks. Noah is feeling much better, he's bouncing off the walls, in fact!
Here's the link to The Frugal Girl's Grape Jelly instructions. So easy. Everyone here loves it.
