When I was first married and had to learn how to cook for two people instead of seven, I was always frustrated when I found recipes calling for half an onion, 1/3 cup chopped bell pepper, 1 carrot, etc. Most bell peppers and onions are sold whole. Then after having kids (yeah, it took me a while), I learned you could freeze a lot of different vegetables. Potatoes are a little tricky. But I chop and freeze the following on a pretty regular basis:
bell pepper (red, yellow, and green)
onions (white, red, yellow, sweet, and green)
Chopping up leftover vegetables and freezing them saves time, money, and prevents waste. Living frugal is one of my favorite pasttimes. For a fun kid-friendly Valentine's Day Frugal Friday click here. For more Frugal Friday posts that I didn't write, visit LifeAsMom.
