Here's the thing
I like celery. I like "a little" celery in things like tuna salad, or egg salad, just about any salad 'thingy' that you make for sandwiches or actual salads. I don't like celery soup. SO....what is one supposed to do with ALL that leftover celery when you buy the economical bunch?? You pay 2.99 for a bunch and 7.99 for the option of Longo's putting the correct amount in a little partitioned plastic box along with a reasonable amount of cauliflower, and cherry tomato. Two people cannot consume an entire cost-effective bunch of celery before it withers, no matter what container you put it in. There is only so much tuna, salmon, or egg salad one can eat with the perfect "smallish" amount of celery. I know my daughter would solve this with a jar of Cheez Whiz. I may have to cave on this one. I'm so beyond Cheez Whiz, but I cannot throw things out either.
Don't get me started on cabbage. I wanted just a "bit" of coleslaw. Hamburger and cabbage lasting three days....I still have more than half a head of cabbage. Dole keeps recalling their packages of salad fixings. You can't freeze cabbage.
HOWEVER, and this is HUGE....you can freeze left-over buttermilk. I love my little Ziplock portion freezer bags and now have little cups full of buttermilk for those wonderful recipes you all sent in. One problem solved. Now if only I can remember that I have frozen buttermilk available. It's all so much for a bear of so little brain.
