There are a good number of recipes that require just half of an ingredient, especially things like onions. I’ve been dicing or mincing the leftover halves, and storing them into stack-able containers in order to build the most awesome D.I.Y. omelet bar ever. This way, I can make myself a huge veggie-filled omelet in the morning without having to do all that prep work.
What do you usually do with the other half? Plastic wrap it and store it? Freeze it? Throw it into a big vat of chili?

  2. nachty said: I like the omelet (or even egg scramble) idea! I normally use that type of stuff for salads. I hate making salads with nothing prepared and I hate wasting chopped veggies. I used to save that stuff for homemade stock, but now I’m too lazy for that.
  3. 909miles said: foodhuggers.com - ★★★★ So rad. Would hug again. (sometimes tho, I do the same thing as you, I chop ‘em all up with a diced green pepper and diced ham then they’re ready to go for Denver sandwiches)
