Secrets of Success

Soup Over Time



I keep a zip lock freezer bag in my freezer that I am adding veggies to each day. If I have a 1/4 cup of green beans left over from dinner,etc. I add to the soup bag. I do this with every veggie, bean, celery leaf, etc. When I'm craving a pot of homemade soup I already have enough ingredients and also do not waste any food during the week. I accumulate and keep frozen until ready to use. This works well for 1-2 person households that have a little left after each meal but not a serving size.

  • Awesome idea,I'll definitly use this one! emoticon - by HAPPYGAL211
  • I eat soup almost every week. I'll make a big pot if a week goes by without using up my fresh veggies. I keep beans, barley, wild rice, & lentils on hand to add to the soups for even more fiber. Never does food go to waste in my house! - by SUNSHINE6442
