To keep chopped onions from smelling up the fridge and to keep the odor from permeating plastic containers, put your chopped onions in a glass jar with a tight fitting lid - works great every time!
I used to store onions in a plastic baggy which made the fridge stink; then I tried a plastic container and had to sit it outside for months to get rid of the odor. The glass does not absorb odors the way plastic does.

I have a gift for taking leftovers and stuff that I have in the fridge and pantry and creating delicious and easy meals from it. Most people hate to waste food so why do it? If you use a little imagination, you can come up with some great new ideas to use use up what you have on hand.
For example if you have leftover grilled chicken breasts and some peppers and onions in the fridge you can make easy and delicious fajitas with just a few ingredients and spices. Quick, easy amd delicious!
Before boiling your eggs, wrap the outer skin from an onion around the egg. You can use red or yellow onions. Next wrap the egg and onion skin in paper towel. Secure with a rubber band. Boil eggs as normal. This also works well if you want to remember which eggs in your fridge are hard boiled.
Always make sure your fridge is stocked with fresh fruits and veggies. This may mean shopping a couple times a week, but I guarantee when you open your fridge door and see all the healthy food your diet is so much easier!
I keep apples, pears, berries, bananas, avocados sweet potatoes, squash, cauliflower, broccoli, kale, swiss chard, onions and carrots on hand every week. 277368284
