Since it was a pretty blah Saturday, (cool and rainy) I decided to clean out the frig and freezer. I knew what would happen, it is the same when I try to clean out my gardens. I end up pulling out saved items and start to pitch, then I think about what I could make and use the ingredient. I think I have been watching to many episodes of Iron Chef and Chopped.. In my garden, I just cannot throw out plants. I always end up somehow finding new homes for the rejects.
Here are a few of the results; Cantaloupe Bread, Banana Crunch Muffins, and Vegetable Beef Stew. So they are now packaged up and back in the refrigerator and freezer in a new form. I think there is something wrong with this picture?
