I also save all leftover or slightly aged veggies in a bag in the freezer. When I think I have enough, I do a soup too. Lots of pot barley, sometimes whatever can of beans I may have....even kasha sometimes....memories of my childhood.....kasha in chicken soup...anyway, try it, you'll like it.
Well, the soup was great since the weather is under 30 degrees. Seemed happy to eat it. Have some leftover and I know that will be even better. I like to prepare soup one day and eat the next but with vegetables going bad I want to get them out of the way as soon as possible. Now I am grateful I have more room in the icebox to start all over. Talk about repitition! As long as they eat it up I have achieved my goal.
I will keep all the comments to use for future use. I do appreciate all your time and suggestions. You certainly do help. Thanks
