I use onions a lot! But I usually just need about a half of an onion for our recipes. I know I should have been doing this but I have started to dice up the rest of the onion and throw it in a freezer bag. Beside saving money because I didn’t throw away half an onion, I have been saving so much time.
You see when I have diced onions in the freezer it makes meal prep so much easier and faster. Plus, no extra dishes and my hands don’t smell like onions. The last few times I have made a crock pot meal – I have been able to pull a bag from the freezer and dinner is cooking a lot faster. (Yes there are times when I use my crock pot and it’s not a freezer meal 🙂
So the next time you are left with half an onion – take the extra minute to dice it up and save some time and money!
Tonight I was making Pico De Gallo chicken and this was the left over. It is so easy, delicious, and healthy. Out whole family loves it.
