Do you end up throwing out small bits and pieces of meals? Here’s a way to use them up!

Put a largish container in your freezer. Instead of throwing away those bits and pieces, place add them to your container until you think there are enough scraps for a soup. Cook up a pot of soup and, voilà, you have a tasty, low-cost meal that recycles and reuses food and reduces the amount of groceries you need to buy.
