Frugal Fried Rice

Save leftover rice in a freezer bag. Keep adding to it until you have enough to make fried rice for the whole family.
Just thaw it and add whatever chopped vegetables you like (peas & carrots are good, mushrooms are good too!), saute a bit with a little onion and garlic, scramble in an egg, put in the rice and some leftover cubed pork or chicken & heat until all is hot. Stir in some soy sauce and maybe a touch of sesame oil & you're set.

When I was young, mom had a container in the freezer that she put in the leftovers from meals. She would put in leftover roast, gravey, potatoes, veggies and meat juices. When the container was full she would thaw it and make what she called freezer soup. She usually added broth or tomato juice and seasoning. Of course freezer soup was different everytime, because of the different leftovers that went into it.

Save your potato peels. Wash them well and layer on a greased cookie sheet. Bake until they are puffy and sprinkle with cheese, salt, and pepper. Serve with sour cream and salsa. Makes a great snack for movie nights.
