Last week at the grocery store I stocked up on fresh vegetables. I had good intentions of using them all during the week for dinners. Unfortunately, my plan didn't work out and all that fresh produce is still in my fridge.
I knew it was 'use it or lose it' by now. I couldn't bear the thought of throwing all that food away; that's just like putting cash in the trash, right? I spent some time in the kitchen Sunday afternoon preserving those veggies.
Now they are safely tucked away in my freezer and I've managed to eliminate one step in the prepping process for future meals. Here's what I've got: 1 zucchini, shredded; 1 green pepper cut into strips with onions for a fajita mix; 1 onion chopped, and a cucumber salad in the fridge which will be great for lunches this week. I'm changing tonight's dinner plan to utilize the large head of green leaf lettuce that was on it's last leg. We'll be having caesar salad. To make it a bit more filling, I'm adding some cooked pasta and the last of the grape tomatoes that need to be used. Monday night I'll be roasting broccoli and mushrooms as a side dish for our dinner.
That should do it. I can say that I made good on my intentions.
