Appetite for Apricots

I love apricots.

.....................Photobucket

So much so that I kind of overdid it at the Grocery Store. I bought too many, and realized that I had to use them up quickly, or we'd have some soggy, wrinkly old 'cots at the bottom of our fridge.

Friday afternoon I baked some little Apricot Tea Cakes, and even after that, there were still lots of apricots hanging out in the fridge, so this afternoon I decided to make another apricot dessert. Apricot Cream Whoopie Pies. Soooo yummiful!

Do you ever do that? Buy too many of something and have to hurry up and eat it all before it all goes bad?

I love apricots!! But yea they do go bad fast!! My mom once bought a huge thing of strawberries cuz the box was like a buck but we had to eat them wayyy wayyy too fast. hehe. =)

we have that problem with avocados! Buy too many because they're never ripe at the store, and by the time they're good, we just can't eat them fast enough. ;)


and apricots are delicious!!!

Mmm...I love apricots. However, nectarines are my favorite. Although they bug my allergies...well, I can handle that. ;)

Nice post though...despite the wet spot on my sweater. =)

Those whoopee pies look great. Did you use a recipe or make it up on your own? I do that all the time during blueberry season. I think with fruit you have to buy it when you can so it is easy to do.

Meghan said...

That happens to me all of the time! I buy so much produce that I really need to make sure I eat it before it goes bad!

Vanessa said...

Apricot cream whoopie pies? What, are you trying to kill me with jealousy? That sounds insanely delicious.

I had the same problem friday with eggplants... I 've made Pasta alla Norma (Typical italian dish http://italianfood.about.com/od/vegetablesauces/r/blr0019.htm), then Egglant Parmiggiana, then grilled eggplant...
Your cakes look delicious! and your pics are the best day by day

Tender Branson - I had found a recipe for Chocolate Whoopie Pies a few years ago from a Martha Stewart mag, but modified it to be apricot instead of chocolate for these ones.

Your apricot yummies look too lovely to eat! What a lovely blog!

Yes, this is my problem, too. Whenever I go to the department stores, I love to have a look at the confectioneries. All those sweets are so tempting. I hear them whispering me "Take us home with you." Of course I take some of them home with me.
Your appricot sweets look so gooood!

oh my gosh, Dionne! these look fantastic!! aren't whoopie pies just the best invention ever? How can you even say whoopie pie without smiling. Is it possible?

I've so done this with apples at the start of fall. It's like I'm up to my ears in apples! good thing apple crisp is one of my favorite favorite desserts.
