Waste Not Want Not Wednesday #62

Got a great gluten free recipe, some frugal, eco-friendly tips or  a healthy living article? Well come join the party!

The Waste Not Want Not Wednesday link-up party is inspired by World Food Day (Oct. 16), and recent articles such as this one that show between 40-51% of food in Canada and America ends up in the garbage.  Over-consumption, lack of knowledge, low cost and over purchasing are common causes of food waste in North America.  This unsustainable over-consumption extends to so many aspects of our lives.

So perhaps if we all share our tips for consuming a little less stuff in general, cooking more responsibly and frugally, and living eco-friendly, we can each take a small part in making our world a little more sustainable.

And besides, who couldn't save a little bit of $$$ anyway? 

Hi everyone! I'm back on track this week for WNWNW, and have actually scheduled the post to go live while hubby and I are out for "date night" at our favorite restaurant. "Date night" is called such because on Tuesdays, Merchant's in Madison has a special - 1 bottle of wine, 2 entrees, and dessert for $40 (and they use locally sourced foods and have locally made GF bread). Can't beat that for a night out!  

So fingers crossed this goes live on time. If not, I'll be back later in the evening and will fix glitches then, so please bear with me : ) 

The features  from the last WNWNWN party are:

14 Unconventional Sweets for Valentine's Day by
14 Unconventional Valentine Sweets from Raia's Recipes
Gluten Free Blueberry Banana Muffins from The Charm of Home
Easy Spinach Quiche
Easy Spinach Quiche from Frugal Farm Wife

 Feel free to grab a badge from the right!

And now it's your turn!


  1. Hi Danielle,
    Thanks for the feature of the muffins! I hadn't tried that flour yet, I will put it on the list. I am trying all alternate flours and so far no grain works without a reaction. My only go to flour for pancakes etc, has been potato. It always works. I keep searching. Not a lot of solutions with this you just have to change your ways drastically. I didn't make a gluten free recipe this week but when I do I will join you.

    1. Sherry, I'm so sorry to hear you're having a problem with so many flours. I personally find a ratio of 1 part sorghum flour 0.5 parts tapioca to be good, and avoid potato starch because potatoes give me hives! But what a nuisance that OAS is so variable!

  2. Hi Danielle! You've got to love date night! I know we do. This week I'm sharing Thyme Pot Roast with Carrots. I hope you have a great week!

    1. Thyme is one of my current top herbs for soups and stews, it's such a great winter flavour :) Thanks for sharing, Sandi!

  3. Thanks for featuring my Unconventional Valentine Sweets. :)

  4. Hi and thanks for stopping by and leaving the nice comment on the DIY Dry Shampoo I made! Let me know if you make it and if you like the way it works.
