Don’t hate me, but, um, I wasted nothing again this week. Lest you be bored to tears by a pictureless post, I thought I’d give you a bit of a tour through my day. This was one of those happy days where I didn’t have to go much of anywhere(I did have to make a quick trip to the bank, but that was it). So, I had a little more disposable time today than usual. This isn’t everything I did today(I also did school with the kids, practiced for church, washed and hung a load of laundry, cooked dinner, and so on)….this is just the stuff I took pictures of!
After breakfast, I mixed up two loaves of banana bread. I’d found myself with a glut of bananas and they were going past ripe faster than we could eat them. The banana bread recipe called for yogurt, and I used some that Sonia had left in her bowl the day before(I figure any germs in the yogurt got killed during the baking!)
While that was baking, I cut Joshua’s hair. Upon seeing this, Sonia asked for a haircut too, and I acquiesced.
We ate a loaf of banana bread for lunch, and after lunch, I cut up a bunch of apples to make applesauce(the kids get a free apple each week at Weis, and sometimes we can’t keep up with the apply supply!).
Happily, I got three quarts of applesauce, and I still have plenty of apples in the fridge for eating. Half of the applesauce is going into the freezer to use at a later date, and the other half will go with one of our dinners next week.
I cooked most of the apple peels and cores down and squeezed out the juice(I was experimenting with an apple jelly recipe I found online), but Zoe managed to grab a few before I did that.
And lastly, I had two zucchini in the fridge that weren’t going to last much longer, so I made a loaf of zucchini bread.
That was much more exciting than a post without pictures, wasn’t it??
