I know I am just being dramatic but I am starting to take it all personally. I don't have the time to be running at 20%......not for WEEKS! It reeks havoc on every aspect of my life. Everything is behind, or more behind than usual. Everything gets neglected and I get increasingly angry. Shitty I know but I HAVE HAD ENOUGH ALREADY!
One thing that tends to happen when I am not on the ball is an enormous amount of food gets wasted which not only drives me crazy but we can't afford. When I cook I tend to cook for more than one meal at a time. I already know what I am going to do with the left overs before the meal that has the leftovers to use. Nothing gets wasted. All bones from all roasts are saved for soup bones, left over veg goes into these soups, meat scraps become stir fries.....you catch my drift. There are also some interesting ways to use left over that I bet you would never think of like the delicious cake I make from left over mash potatoes and the ground up almonds from making almond milk
Left Over Mash Potato Cake
- 2/3 cup unsalted butter, softened
- 2/3 cup sugar
- 4 eggs
- 2/3 cup ground almonds
- 2 tsp baking powder
- 2/3 cup plain, cold mashed potato
- Finely grated zest of 3 lemons
- 2 Lemons, juiced
- 5 tbsp sugar
- 1/2 cup whipping cream, whipped
When finished baking remove from oven and let cool. When cool, combine the lemon juice and sugar until the sugar is completely dissolved. With the point end of a knife poke a bunch of holes into the top of the cake but without reaching the bottom of the cake. Pour the lemon juice and sugar mixture evenly over the top of the cake. Serve with a dollop of whipped cream.
This is an incredibly dense lemony cake that's not rich or creamy so be generous with the whip cream. It is a winter cake if that make sense
