If you’re one of those people who loves to make a nice hearty soup on a chilly night, it’s time to start getting ready now. I know, it was 100 degrees in Oklahoma yesterday. No one is really eating soup. BUT if you get ready now, then you could save yourself some money later. Keep a gallon sized freezer bag in the door of your freezer. If you ever have leftover vegetables (corn, green beans, peas, squash, carrots… whatever you like) throw the leftovers into that bag. Just keep adding to it until it’s full. Mix it all up and you’ve got the makings of a nice vegetable stew. Add in some broth, beans, some canned tomatoes or tomato paste, season and you’re done! If you’re not into vegetarian, add in some stew meat or ground beef. Yum!
