Lots of produce and rootbeer!

It’s amazing what you can get from what first looks like barely anything in a dumpster.  Tonight, we hit up our local store and scored:  broccoli, cauliflower, lettuce, tomatoes, cucumbers, carrots, green beans, grapes, oranges, potatoes (russet and red), bell pepers (red and green), mushrooms (baby portabellas and large caps), a lot of cantaloupe and almost a case of root beer!

After sorting everything and cutting up what was to be frozen, I made dinner!   Just potatoes, red and green bell peppers and baby portabellas.  All dumpstered except the salsa and carrot lentil nacho cheese on top!

Suggestion:

When you find excess of fruits (and other foods that freeze well), cutting into smaller pieces and storing in bags makes it easy for breaking off small portions to eat later on.  We freeze mostly fruits for smoothies.  I would have to say I am not a fan of frozen broccoli.  It just doesn’t taste the same.

Also, if you find a lot of tomatoes (and if you are lucky, a ripe avocado or two), I always make a batch of salsa.  I am more likely to clean up salsa faster than a lot of tomatoes.  Plus, you can make salsa from tomatoes and just about anything.  And, you know, it’s awesome!
