Time flies like an arrow…

…and fruit flies like a banana, but not nearly as much as they like my quietly decaying mountain of apples and pears 🙁

In my best efforts to bake, cook and eat the stuff as swiftly as possible, I’d neglected to take the bin bag of bruised offcuts to the outside bin quickly enough and opened the bin to a small swarm of the buggers this morning. Bin bag was duly sealed and trotted outdoors together with any obviously hopeless fruit and the remaining fruit installed in the fridge out of harm’s (and flies’ way).

Today’s effort Toffee Apple Flapjacks spoiled slightly by insufficient plain toffees and DD’s insistence on including the Licorice ones (no, they’re yucky!). Oh well, I’m away this weekend, so won’t have to eat any.

  1. I don’t like flapjacks whatever the flavor 😀 so you have alucky escape 🙂

    • Oh, I love flapjacks, I even like licorice if it’s not too overwhelming, but it just doesn’t work on these 🙁 Still, DD seems to like them, so the lucky girl will get to eat the whole tray 😀

  2. I permanently have a small herd of tiny flies in the kitchen. They must be living on something fruity somewhere. Or a decomposing mouse.

    *hangs head in shame* I bring disgrace on the name of the Kitchen Goddess.

    • Won’t be the mouse – fruit flies like decaying fruit and veg so it’ll either be something forgotten at the bottom of the veg rack or fruitbowl, or some food detritus stuck in the sink.
