My hunky husband is fabulous. Instead of bringing home roses, he brought home broccoli. I like fresh flowers as much as the next girl. But if I have to choose between a dozen roses and a giant box of organic red bell peppers at wholesale prices, well, I’ll choose the peppers every time until my freezer fills up.
He stopped at Federal Produce in Denver, Co to check out their deals. Regular people are able to purchase produce here at wholesale prices. (That’s if you consider my family “regular people.”)
My hunky husband bought broccoli, red bell peppers, red onions, and strawberries. Why was I so excited? The organic strawberries were around $2 for 8 pounds. This was after I complained to him that I forgot to freeze strawberries when they were in season. That’s love.
We spent the weekend preparing the produce for the freezer. My freezer is now packed with dehulled-strawberries awaiting smoothie heaven. It is packed with chopped, and blanched broccoli awaiting soups and pasta bakes. It is also packed with strips and dices of bell peppers for omelettes and stir-fries. The 25 pounds of red onions are stored in my basement and will be used up quickly on pizza, sandwiches, and salads.
