I made two huge loaves of Garbage Bread on Friday night. Buy huge – I mean the 4 loaf recipe I use to bake bread made the two loaves stuffed with yummy goodness. The best part (for me, and our budget) is that the yummy goodness consisted of leftover browned ground beef and diced onion that didn’t make it into the pot stickers earlier this week, along with the “lasts” of a few other ingredients from various meals. The last of a bag of broccoli, the mozzarella cheese from the baked ziti, and a bit more of the ricotta – that I purchased more of for other meals aside from the baked ziti such as this one.
Not that I bake multiple cakes per week as a normal thing, but the bag of apples I picked from the market were all bruised. Horribly. Sure, I could have taken them back – but it wasn’t worth the 2 mile walk there and then back again, especially in the cold! Even with that particular markets “Double your money back” guarantee on produce – though I was seriously tempted. If I weren’t so uncomfortable with my back and such – I really might have done it, but alas – it wasn’t meant to be – this time. I’ll be more dilligent from here on out though. In the mean time, there’s one more cake to be baked from the batch of apples. Fortunately, with it being Super Bowl Sunday and all – I doubt there will be any left hanging around tempting me in the slightest.
