Freezer Update

I did my normal grocery shopping this morning and did not buy any frozen food! It absolutely killed me to walk past the reduced priced meat and the two aisles of frozen food, but I did not venture down those aisles. For dinner tonight, we are having grilled pork tenderloin (from my freezer stash), some kind of frozen veggies, baked potatoes, and homemade bread.

My in laws gave me a huge container of honey that someone gave them so I'm looking for ways to use this up before it goes bad. I also came home with two bags of apples. These are baking apples so I'm looking for ways to use them too. On Friday, I will share my favorite apple crisp recipe, which can be made ahead and frozen. Earlier in the apple season, I made several of these and froze them so I can have fresh apple crisp all winter long. Feel free to share any ideas you have.

Hi I was checking out your blog :D and saw your honey problem. Here is a recipe to use up a little.

Honey Cakes
1/2 cup melted butter
1/2 c brown sugar
2 TBLS Honey
3 Cups puffed rice (or other puffed cereal)

Heat butter, brown sugar and honey together. Boil them for 4 min.

Then add the puffed rice and mix well.

Grease a dish with butter and spread the mixture into the dish

Chill for 2 hours and cut into slices

They are great for a quick breakfast or snack
