Yum! Fresh Sugar Snap Peas! What a good deal! Into the cart they go. Days later we are tired of fresh peas and can not possibly eat another one. What to do with all that yumminess??? I don't like to waste. So, I cut the pea pod up and sauteed them in coconut oil. YUM! I added them to scrambled eggs with sauteed onions and cheese! Delicious. I still had more than I could use so, I froze the leftovers to use another day. No waste and a real time saver having almost fresh ingredients ready to add to other dishes.
After the holiday BBQ we had some onion slices left over. I diced them, sauteed them and put them in a ziploc freezer bag and into the freezer. Now one step is complete next time I cook, my fridge does not smell funky, and the onion did not go to waste.
I love my freezer.
