Waste food

A recent report says that a third of households routinely throw away left over food.
This is not good enough and unforgiveable as it is easy to recycle food with a little ingenuity and common sense. Remember the traditional soup menu. On Monday it is leek and potato: Tuesday, vegetable: Wednesday Beef and vegetable, Thursday, brown Windsor and Friday, mulligatawny. The same can be done with other foods, apart from saving to reheat on following days. In this respect a microwave is indispensable. Cold cuts of meat, chicken, pork, beef, sausages roasts, whatever can be finely chopped up, mixed with bread crumbs and egg to create rissoles. This does not take up much time but there is a wider issue.
It is our duty to use to the full the bounty afforded to us by nature. No vegetable should be disrespected by discarding rather than consuming. Animals and crops are given for human consumption and it is criminal that they should perish in vain. don't throw away a carrot because it has a blemish or has gone soft. Cut out the blemish and carry on, knowing that the vegetable will have fulfilled its purpose as nature intended.
