Carrots will dry out if you just leave them in a bag without blanching them/flash freezing. Buy doing it in water they keep much better and are crisp when you thaw them out.

You can also make twice baked potatoes or potato skins. I cook them, then freeze them so when they are thawed out, you can nuke and go.

That reminds me, if you ever want to do your chopping/dicing a day in advance, carrots, potatoes and celery all keep well in water in the fridge (I recommend an airtight container).

Awesome, let me know how it turns out! I just finished my first ever meatloaf and diced up more potatoes and onions for a second round of breakfast burritos to freeze.

Speaking of potatoes, I just made some homemade mashed potatoes (but I left enough potatoes for soup later this week!). I used Smart Balance Milk (lactose free) again and once again taste absolutely no difference. Love using $0.50/gallon milk! This was also the same gallon that was in the freezer for 2 weeks - no separation or anything. I'll definately be keeping my eye out for future deals!

ps - I should note that it was my New Year's Resolution to learn how to cook this year, so don't mind me getting excited over simple things like making meatloaf, lol
