Transformations

 After using up all of the apples passed on to me the other day, I still had a box full of ripe bananas to turn into something so they would not go to waste.  Banana bread was a no brainer.  i used this recipe:  http://octoberfarm.blogspot.com/search?q=banana+bread

I cut each loaf into four mini loaves so more people would get some.  It's very dense so these small loaves go far.

At noon The Blog Tech will be passing out the apple sauce and bread.  Food saved from the dumpster!  A bunch of people get a nice treat! Score one for the team!

For one family with a bunch of little kids, I made a big bread pudding. Here is the recipe:  http://octoberfarm.blogspot.com/search?q=bread+pudding


You have to temper the eggs with the hot sugar mixture.

I mixed the bread cubes with 1 cup of raisins and about 4 thinly sliced bananas.

It bakes at 350 degrees for about 1 hour.

This is served warm with a vanilla sauce ladled over it.

It is so cold here today that Teddy's water fountain froze.

It didn't help that each time I closed the patio door she opened it again.  She likes to lay just inside of the opened door.
