I had a zucchini, a carrot, some peppers, onion, tomatoes and bell peppers that I needed to use before they would get bad. I didn’t feel like cooking a dinner but baking. So I decided to make some filled pasties. I schredded the vegetables and put them in my pastydough as well as in the filling made from minced meat. It turned out great! The pasties became so soft and moist due to the zucchini and also yoghurt in it.

Learn to Pickle

You don’t need a vegetable garden or a fancy party as an exuse to make your own pickles. Neither do you have to preseve food for the whole winter. I use to make pickles often to not waste small vegetables I have in the refrigerator. It could be a cucumber I worry I will not use before it will go soft, a carrot or two, a small piece of cabbage, some apple or pear, anything really. It is fast and easy!

Watermelon Popsicles and Ice Cubes

There is nothing better a warm day than a slice of watermelon. I love to take it with me to the beach or on a picknick.

You can freeze watermelon. Cut small cubes and freeze and use them as ice-cubes in a drink or just a glass of water. Cut them in icecreamshapes and stick a Popsicle stick in each. Freeze and you have a watermelon icecream or cold drinks to look forward to!

Homemade Apple Sauce

Today I have made Applesauce from fallen apples. Last night there was a heavy thunderstorm and heavy rains. In the common yard outside my apartmentcomplex there are these big appletrees. Anyone can pick the apples but I never see anyone but me do it. However most are so high up I cannot reach them. But due to the weather apples fell to the ground last night. This morning I went out and picked them. I have now cooked all and I got 2 kg of free Apple Sauce! I will freeze the jars and it will last me a year.
