Loads of Veggies
I usually don’t buy large amounts of veggies at a time, unless I can get a good deal on them. My last grocery shopping trip found me with 2 bags of onions and 8 green peppers!! I already had a partial bag of onions at home, and 2 green peppers. I almost didn’t get them, but the deal was just too good, and I had a little extra room in my budget.
What in the world was I going to do with so many veggies?!
Insert handy dandy food processor.
I seeded the green peppers and threw them into my food processor. Chopped it up for a few seconds, and bagged them up in freezer bags in “cookable” portions.
I ended up with about 10 little baggies of green peppers all for $1.78…or .18 cents a bag!!<br>
I removed the outsides of the onions, cut it in half and threw them in the food processor. I already had one bag of onions on my list for the week, so I just chopped up one bag of onions. It yielded 10 little baggies of chopped onions, in 1 cup portions. For these onions it only cost me .59, or .06 a bag!
This is much cheaper than using those dehydrated onion pieces, and can be used almost interchangably. You end up with almost twice as much onions for a 1/5 of the price.
This definitely works for me! A little time here, will save tons of money later!
