ONION - PROJECT # 4 - FREEZING SOUP VEGETABLES

I just saved 1/2 hour of my time for my next soup by freezing the precise amount of vegetables I need; the vacuum sealed package ready for freezing, contain: 2 cups chopped onion, 2 cups diced carrots, 2 cups chopped celery, 2 cups diced zucchini, 2 cups mixed peppers, 2 cups peas;
90% of the soup ingredients are here in this package; the rest I will use fresh, such as potatoes, tomatoes (if I want tomato soup) meat and rice or pasta. I love to make my job easier but most important thing for me by freezing, is that I save money!
This freezing procedure is my new project for any food that can be freeze.


ONION -PROJECT # 3 - CHOPPING, SLICING, FREEZING



After dicing and slicing the onion, vacuum packaging is necessary before freezing.
Home Vacuum Packaging System locks out air and moisture. Prevents freezer burn and seals in freshness.



ONION - PROJECT # 2 - BAKED STUFFED ONION


All you need is some onions...

...scooped...


...stuffed with mixture of ground meat (pork in this case), rice, chopped onion (from scooping) tomato paste, salt, pepper; I made to much of this stuffing and I use it all in the same dish; the more the better...

...bake it for almost one hour at 400 F; I added some mozzarella cheese 5 minutes before I remove it from the oven...


...and this is it! Soooo delicious; garlic bread IS A MUST with this dish !!!

ONION - PROJECT # 1 - PICKLED ONION


ONION - BIG PROJECT - LOTS OF TEARS!

What do you do with 50 lb. of onion? I'm still thinking...! But something must be done a.s.a.p.
First I will need my gloves and probably two boxes of tissue...literally I will cry!
Coming soon with the project results, so... keep in touch!
How soon? When there will be "No More Tears" haha...
(you know Ozzy Osbourne song "No More Tears" right? well, I'm sure he did not have to deal with onions when he wrote the song...hahaha)
