Clianing Out the Pantry

This time of the year I like to clean out the pantry. That is I am trying to use up things that have been there for a while so I can restock over the summer and into the fall.

I had two cans of Apple Pie Filling that had been there since last fall so I knew I could whip up something for dessert with those.  I also had several cake mixes that needed to be used as well so I hit Google and found this recipe.

Easy Fruit Cobbler

2 cans of fruit pie filling.( I had apple and by mistake I had picked up one can that was caramel apple pie filling but I used it along with the plain apple pie filling.)
1 white or yellow cake mix( I had a butter flavor one that I needed to use up)
1 and 1/2 sticks of butter or margarine melted

Pour the pie filling into a 13 by 9 dish. Spread the cake mix over the top. I just spooned it over my apples and I will say I did not use the whole cake mix. There was probably about 1/2 cup of the cake mix that I just tossed.

Melt butter in microwave and pour over the cake mix. Bake 45 minutes in a preheated 375 degree oven.

Here is the finished product and my it was tasty. I took some next door to share with the neighbors. They moved Miss J to the rehab facility today to recuperate so Mr J and Leslie needed some comfort food as they had more paperwork to deal with when they got home from the facility.   Apple pie is good for what ails you!!

I need to tackle my pantry and do the same thing. Maybe after Easter. I am struggling with what I should do versus what I want to do today. I am home for a larger portion of time today than I have been in a while. Trying to decide between tidying up the garage, cutting out a beach cover up to sew, or stitching. Starting the garage might suck up too much time, and I would love a day of fun, so right now I am leaning heavily towards the sewing or stitching and then maybe the garage this afternoon. Either way I have got to get off the computer and get a few chores done:)

Well I just finished eating some apple pie for I am a complete slacker this morning. I did get my garage cleaned out yesterday so I am off to take some things to be donated today. I would go to sewing or stitching but I am easily persuaded. I am such a morning person that if a big chore is not completed in the am if will not be done. I am off to have lunch with the girls and to get my hair trimmed so I will be gone most of the day. I did get my steps in Mon- Wed. It will be a challenge to do so today but I am going to try!!

This sounds very tasty, Arlene! I'm pretty sure I might have some cans of pie filling in my pantry that needs using up. I think they are peach, but that would be good also!

Arlene Grimm said...

Ladies I think any kind of pie filling would work well with this recipe. I had some for breakfast so it was tasty the next day as well.:)

I'm drooling for that cobbler. Have a wonderful Easter, Arlene.

Arlene, what a great recipe idea! So easy and it sounds perfect. I'm wondering if it would work for a 4th of July event? Now I'm hungry! :-)

I make that same recipe with cherry pie filling - so good!
