My sister used to always have an ice cream pail in the fridge and every night leftovers (if there were any) would go into the pail. When the pail was half to 3/4 full, she would make soup....

For some strange reason, all the leftovers io seemed to marry well into a delish soup. Except for one time, she told me there was something that did not go with everything else but I don't remember what it was - just that they never added that item to the soup bucket again.

I never seem to have room in my little freezer for a soup bucket, although I wish I did... I usually end up putting everything in little bags and hope I can find them in all the little nooks and crannies of the freezer when I go to make my soup.....

I keep a plastic bowl with a lid in the freezer....all my veggie scraps go into it, onion peels, asparagus butts, bell pepper tops/seeds, herb stems, etc.
When it gets full, I make my own veggie broth.

I also do the same for random chicken bits, bones and things for home made broth.

Then on the days that I make a huge pot of broth, I separate it into 1-2 cup bowls and freeze....after they freeze solid, i remove from the bowls, wrap in plastic wrap and store them all in a bag in the freezer, then when I need broth for a recipe or something, I just grab a pack and toss it in. Or defrost it and use it...depending on what recipe I am making.

Man sacrifices his health in order to make money.

Then he sacrifices money to recuperate his health.

And then he is so anxious about the future that he does not enjoy the present;

The result being that he does not live in the present or the future;
he lives as if he is never going to die, and then dies having never really lived.

Again, not a "diabetic" article, but it does have some good tips ..... Like using a peeler to shave onions for very fine strips. I love that one.....

Lots of neat ideas here. I love the green onion frozen in a soda bottle. I never seem to use up a whole bunch in time and end up throwing so much away....

I also love the idea of scooping out an apple and filling with apple cider. That would make an impressive presentation, and the strawberries filled with cheese, or strawberries covered in chocolate, or..... Aw shucks, I love them all......

What are some of your favorite tips and time savers in the kitchen?
