Kitchen Tip Tuesday

#2 I buy onions in bulk then chop them all up. I put 1/4 cup in Ziploc snack bags and put them in the freezer. So if a recipe calls for onions I have them already to go. From freezer to frying pan to soups to crock pot meals to casserole dishes to whatever. I also do the same with red, green and yellow peppers. It cuts down on prep time and too many episodes of crying :-)

So what do I use to chop? My absolutely favorite things...drum roll please....
Vidalia Chop Wizard. I love this thing!! Its great for chopping up food for little mouths. I do carrots and potatoes for stews, apples and pears for fruit salad, cooked chicken breasts for casseroles and so much more. Its easy to use and just tip it up and you have measurements. Then it comes with a comb to clean the lid. All dishwasher safe. It has really cut down on my prep time.

I did it, and cried like a baby. I had to step out of the kitchen three times because I couldn't see through my tears! I only did 2 onions. I can't take it! I need to find my old chem lab goggles and try wearing them :-) Or I could just stick with my usual plan of settling for bland food...onions are not my friend!

I have a very similar chopped from a company called Genius. It does the same and I LOVE it too! Does your freezeer smell like onions, becasue I find that the smell goes right through the bag?
