πŸ‘¨β€πŸ³ Cooking in the Time of COVID πŸ‘¨β€πŸ³

This is it! The last post of the purge-the-pantry-flush-the-freezer-of-elderly-edibles exorcism! Aside from items that are mandated to reside there on a long term basis, all that remained in the freezer was some puff pastry; the pantry had been home to a can of Russian caramel fudge cream (sort of like dulce de leche) that was well past its expiration date; and apropos of expiry, those bananas on the counter were hurtling to their demise as well, so I let the weird experiments commence. <Cue ominous pipe organ music.>

For the sweet batch, I combined the mushy bananas with the dense caramel fudge cream and made some, um, what you see here…

…and tried a different shape as well. I don’t have a clue as to what I made but they were crispy and sweet straight out of the oven.

On the savory side, this is a melty, creamy, Greek feta, er, thing…

…and I added slices of a remaining Polish sausage (remember those from a previous freezer rant?) to the mix in a final fling.

All were yummy and frankly, if I knew they were going to taste this good, I might have taken more time shaping the dough – not my strong suit though. But it’ll be a long time before I buy more frozen puff pastry unless I have a goal in mind beforehand. πŸ˜‰
Stay safe, be well, and eat whatever it takes. ❀️
