I really enjoy reading Frugal Girl's blog - she has a feature called Food Waste Friday where she talks about how they try not to waste food during the week. It's right up my alley when she talks about making banana muffins. She says you can tell how many bananas they didn't eat by how many muffins get baked. The same is true at my house for apples! Luckily, people around here love Apple Bread. Maybe because it's more like cake...
