    I don't believe it - C_Q beat me to it. I also would like the recipe for the carrot and banana cake.

    Here's thought and great money saving idea. EITHER myself and C_Q cook a meal or cake, make double and then we can share.(Let's forget the distance travelled huh?) After all, we were bound to be having the same anyway. What's in your crock-pot next, sis?

    Sounds good to me LOL! ;)

    I'm going to give the pork hock and lentil soup (posted on soups thread) a whirl in it today and see how that comes out. I need another cup of coffee or two yet though before I can stomach frying carrots, onions, celery and garlic so early LOL!

    Did I also see you mention somewhere that you had Irish blood, or was that someone else? My grandmother is Irish too :rotfl:

    250g sr flour
    1 tsp baking powder
    150g soft brown suger
    125g grated carrots
    2 ripe bananas, mashed
    2 large eggs, beaten

    Sift together flour, baking powder & pinch of salt. Stir in sugar, add carrots and bananas and mix. Make a well in the centre and add eggs and oil, mix. Pour into a 20cm round greased cake tin, bake at 180c for 1 1/4 hours.

    This is good both hot and cold. Cold on its own, hot with ice-cream/cream/custard.

    Carrot and banana cake to be cooked soon methinks. Tesco's were selling off their value ones at 49p so grabbed a bag - not all bashed or bruised either.

    C_Q - Mr TM's Irish, not me. Born and bred Lanc and proud of it.

    160 - nice to see you back again. Was thinking about you only last night.

    Please help my partner 's dad got a tad excitied with the fruit shopping for us this week.

    We have about 10 bananas poss more, lots of oranges, plums, nectarines , peaches, cherries, apples, kwiwi fruits, pears and 3 punnets of strawberries.

    This little lot needs to be eaten up in a week as next week we will get some more fruit. I have thought about doing fruit salads but right now I dont have room in the fridge the freezer isn't much better :o.

    I have just eaten a peach and a plum and partner has had two oranges and his dad had some fruit. It isn't going down though.

    I normally have anywhere between 3 and 5 pieces of fruit a day but I wont manage all this lot please help.

    Please don't suggest jams though as the recipes / ideas need to be low energy ones due to my health.

    Thank you

    Hows about making some breakfast fruit muffins? I dont have a recipe to hand, but I guess a load could go into a muffin recipe and frozen, and would be good for unexpected visitors and breakfasts on the go.

    Sorry cant be of more help, im not too good with fruit tbh!

    Are you following me Jo :p ? You seem to be popping up everywhere even in the arms ;). I hadn't thought of muffins so that is actually a great help.

    Do you have a blender/stick blender? Make smoothies.

    This week I have been having a pint of fruit smoothy for my brekkie - 1 banana, lots of strawbs, couple of nectarines and some milk/rice milk/fruit juice. Whizz up and yummy. Today I'd run out of nectarines so had red grapes. Kids won't drink them because of the fruit skin bits, but I love 'em and they are soooo good for you.
