|Near Cannery Row in Monterey, Ca.|
When a vacation rolls around, it always bugs me when I end up with food left in the fridge that has the potential to spoil (especially produce). Normally, if I didn’t have time to eat it, I would just freeze it and call it a day; however, before this particular trip, there was scarcely a square inch of space left in my freezer! (One of the reasons why re-organizing the freezer is on my to-do list.) My mom had sent me some beautiful homegrown veggies shortly before an upcoming vacation, and I was scrambling to figure out what to do with them.
