Berries. All sorts of berries. They look so lovely in teh shops and I'll make jam and tarts and pastries. A week later teh little mouldy punnets get remembered and chucked out...

carrotts and celery I always think I'll give them to the kids as healthy snacks
they always end up brown in the back of the fridge blush

It varies. At the moment I have an out of date carton of figs, I was going to follow a recipe in Tana Ramsey's new book but never got around to it. Berries and bananas never seem to get eaten. I order from Ocado and find that the sell by dates are quite close so I do seem to be forever throwing out fruit and veg.

I never get to the bottom of a tub of cottage cheese before it's green, either.

have been guilty of buying various sprouting things (intentional, not rotting) like alfalfa but still can't bear them despite them being a Super Food

yoghurts, carrots, lettuce and half a soggy cucumber!

ElesJoinsTheRevolution Wed 12-Sep-07 15:44:58

cheese and onion quiche

i always shop when im hungry, i always fancy one, which of course ends up in the bin.

MrsSpoon Wed 12-Sep-07 15:53:12

Kiwis, I have stopped buying them. DS1 and I really like them but when it comes down to it they are not the most practical of fruits, can hardly be grabbed out the fruit bowl and eaten on the way up the road.

Bacon (only dd and I eat it so I freeze it after we've had a couple of pieces, I take it out again and don't get around to eating it all and then it goes off)
Cream (keep meaning to use it in a couple of meals but somehow hardly ever get around to making them)
Yoghurts (dh always gets too many)
