Waste not, want not
The Two Girls eat left overs and pack lunches but we’re really conscious that too much good food ends up as compost or landfill.
We’re thinking about responsible consumption after a food clean up.
One Girl found herself over the weekend, with some fruit that needed to be eaten, otherwise it would have to be thrown out.
My aunt cleaned her own freezer out and brought around a bag of frozen Tassie apricots. I also had a few bananas turning rapidly to black. (The Other Girl never has this problem because she is bananaphobic).
As you can see, just because bananas have turned black doesn’t mean they aren’t still edible, in fact this is the best time to cook with them.
The upside down cake was just as simple, although there were a couple of extra steps with the layering of the brown sugar and apricots, before placing the cake batter over the top.
It is such a great feeling to know that something that may have been thrown out has been turned into some beautiful baked goodies!
