the best way to freeze onions

Time to freeze onions! Did you know you can freeze onions?  I came upon this kitchen hack accidentally one night while cooking dinner.  After I made dinner I had half an onion left over I didn’t want to throw out, so I hurriedly chopped it up and stashed it in a Ziploc bag in the freezer.  I had no idea if it would keep or not, but it didn’t hurt to give it a shot.

Chia seed pudding recipe.

My Easy Tips For Putting Together My Weekly Menu

how to put together a weekly menu

A weekly menu is the best thing since sliced bread.  Or cream puffs.  Actually, a weekly menu is the best thing since chocolate.  Well, maybe not chocolate, that’s crazy talk, but let me put it this way: my weekly menu saves my life. I’ve done every kind of meal planning there is: flying-by-the-seat-of-my-pants planning, organized-but-not-written-down planning, no-planning-of-any-kind, eating-out-instead-of-planning, and most recently, writing-it-all-down-and-being-extra-organized.
