I made a blueberry pastry cream once. It was pretty good.
LOL, okay, here are some of my food philosophies..
I am a person who works with what I have. Generally I get an idea of something I want to make, based on what foods I have that need to be eaten. Then I look for a recipe to use that suits what food ingredients I have and the method of prep I want to use.
I do not drive to town to purchase one item. I would consider riding my bike the 12 miles to buy one or two bananas, but it is too hot and humid today and I don't want to spend that much time just procuring some bananas. I wait until I have at least three tasks before heading into town, usually about every two weeks or more.
I will not pay over $.29/lb for bananas. I was in a large Wal-mart on Monday (one hour away) and they were charging $.59/# for bananas. Don't know what my local Krogers is charging, but they usually want high prices for fruit.
Yesterday I was through my neighbors kitchen and she had no bananas on her counter.
I really concentrate on eating local and seasonal foods. Right now, apples are the fruit of the month.
Thanks for your suggestions though!
