June 15 – Waste not, want not.

Not really a lesson I learnt today but a lesson I reinforced today.

I have learnt while growing up to be resourceful. To not be wasteful. To turn old things into new things. I think I am fairly good at this. Tonight I had cooked too much potato for dinner, so I pulled out my recipe book full of recipes I collect from my wonderful Mother and made up a potato cake. It is something Mum does when she has left over potato.

It’s quick and easy to make and oh so yummy 🙂

It is just-

1 cup of warm mashed potato
1 cup of sugar
2 cups of SR flour

Mix together with enough milk to make moist and bake in a greased loaf tin for 20-30mins on 180deg.

So easy and it makes a yummy treat to enjoy with a cuppa. Cut, butter and Enjoy 😀
