Happy Food Waste Friday! I still can’t believe that I didn’t waste any food last week. Of course, the streak didn’t keep going this week. Even though I tossed out some food, we had a pretty good success with our Apricot Sorbet recipe.[bctt tweet=”Happy #FoodWasteFriday! Join the movement and stop wasting valuable food. “]
I posted this picture on Facebook last week asking for recipe ideas.
I had no idea what to do with these very ripe apricots. I knew I either wanted to try sorbet, no bake energy bars or muffins. You all spoke, and sorbet won the vote! Here is my very first video uploaded to YouTube.
I’m still learning how to make videos, but I think this is pretty good for my first one. Ever. Right? Here is the recipe if you don’t want to watch the video. I’m not a huge fan of videos, I’d much rather read a recipe or directions.
- 10 apricots pitted and cubed
- 1 banana cut into slices
- Freeze apricots and banana for at least an hour. Add to food processor and process until smooth. Eat right away if you like it soft. Freeze for at least 30 minutes if you want it to be the consistency of sorbet.
I put together a fabulous beanie weenie recipe in honor Wet Hot American Summer. The recipe will be on the blog on Monday. Sadly, I made way too many beans than we could eat in a week. I had to throw them out because they started getting a little slimy. Gross!
These guys got slimy too! What’s up with that? Obviously I leave things in my fridge for too long.
