Can you tell I'm packing for a picnic?
Cabbage is always on sale in March. If you like vinegar-based coleslaws, shred an extra head for this easy freezer recipe.
Freeze in portions that suit your family. Thaw in the fridge for a crisp salad at your convenience (and at a rock bottom price.)
Likewise with beans.
I cooked a pound of dry beans in leftover chicken stock. Now I have one 24-oz container to pop in the cooler, with two in the freeze for future meals!
