Fruits & Vegetables

This is what happens when I decide to clean out the fridge.

Mango-Orange-Pear Crumble

Mango-Orange-Pear Crumble, served with milk.

Crumble is a staple for using up leftover fruit. Bonus: it’s equally good for dessert or breakfast. (Think about it: oatmeal, brown sugar, milk, fruit… it’s cereal.)

Carrot Cake

Carrot Cake (but really Carrot-Pineapple-Apple Spice Cake).

I don’t think I’ve made carrot cake before, but I had a bunch of carrots to use up, so I thought I’d try it. Result: yum. I used vegetable oil & applesauce rather than the butter the recipe called for, and crushed pineapple rather than raisins/nuts. The frosting is light cream cheese/icing sugar/lemon juice.

Now there’s just the matter of eating it… Anyone want a piece?
