The last thing I want to waste is food!
Last night I roasted asparagus, potatoes and carrots to go with dinner. Tonight I might make a pasta salad filled with veggies to pack for a quick road lunch.
Then I noticed the bowl of oranges looking at me with sad eyes. Well, not really, but you know what I mean. They're starting to get a little shriveled since I brought home a big bag of easy-to-eat clementines which always get grabbed over oranges.
So, by my side is a big glass of water filled with orange slices. When you're tired of lemon in your water, try this companion citrus fruit. Limes also work well!
I'll also be chopping an orange or two to tuck inside a jar of white vinegar. Later I can whip up my homemade disinfectant spray by mixing half citrus-vinegar mixture with water in a spray bottle.
I'll also use some fresh squeezed orange juice to make a sweet vinaigrette dressing to have on hand for spring salads. Yum!
How do you like to use up an abundance of citrus fruit?
