Money spent and food baked

I wanted a warming winter dessert, and had a cupboard filled with random things. First, I had an entire shopping bag full of feijoas. I believe they may have been payment for a model aeroplane, or something. I spent a while scooping out the innards, and then baked two things with them.

First, a pudding inspired by the peach madness of 2011. It was great. I bought some vanilla bean yoghurt which wasn't too sweet, and was a lovely companion for the pud.

Second, much the same thing but with a topping composed of muesli, a little SR flour, butter, egg and brown sugar. So, kind of the same thing but more breakfasty. That was pretty darned good too.

Also, I spent some money. I tried Snapfish, which is new to me. They had a 40% off sale for photo canvases, so OBVIOUSLY (in the week before payday) the logical thing was to buy a 60cm x 60cm canvas. It's going to look much like this, but bigger:


Why? Because we should all spend money we don't have on things we don't need!! Can't wait to have it on my wall.

    1. Thanks! I actually don't have much wall space in my flat, so I think this one is going in the kitchen (for now). I don't know if spending $100 on a canvas was my greatest ever financial investment, but I'll enjoy it regardless :-)

  3. Beautiful canvas Kat :) Also, if it's X% off, it's ALWAYS a bargain and therefore okay to buy ;) (says the girl who desperately needs to de-clutter...)

    1. That's right, if it's a % off, I'm saving money - not spending it! hahahaha
