One ingredient I really love to add to food is onions. Onions taste so good in soups and stirfries, and add no fat or calories, but a lot of flavor! In the past, I always had a hard time keeping onions. They just seemed to be something I always run out of. Actually, they were something I usually found in the back of the fridge turned into a pile of mush with a quarter or so sliced off.
A few weeks ago, I had a brilliant idea. I was chopping part of an onion to make soup, and instead of wrapping the rest and popping it in the fridge like I usually do, I chopped it all. Then I put it the unused portion in one of those Tupperware-type containers, the kind that are supposed to keep things fresher longer? I will try to find a link. Anyways, it worked out great. For the rest of the week, whenever I wanted to add onions to something, I had a handful fresh and already chopped. I now do this every week after I do my groceries, and I always have onions on hand.
A great idea, if I may say so myself. Try it! I think I’m going to start doing it with peppers next, they are something else I always let go bad before I finish them, even though I love them, because I never feel like chopping them during the dinner rush, and then forget about them.
