My last post has got me thinking about veggies. When we serve vegetables at our house (usually at dinner) we always seem to have a tablespoon leftover. I use to force ask one of my kids to finish it off, but it was hard to make it fair with six kids.
Then one day a friend of mine (who lives in the country and doesn’t waste anything) brought me some soup. It was the best soup I had ever tasted, even my non soup loving kids loved it. I asked her what she used for the broth.
That is when I learned her secret… after every meal, she takes any leftover vegetables and their juice, and dumps it into a container in her freezer. When the container is full she makes soup. To this mixture she adds beef, potatoes, basic spices and any other soup type leftovers she has in her kitchen. She told me she has never made the same soup twice because her frozen container always has a different mixture of leftovers in it, but it is always delicious. So next time you are tempted to dump that last spoonful of veggies down the disposal, freeze it for later. It will save you time and money.
