    AmyZoe's Note:

    It's great to stock up on vegetables when they're on sale, but sometimes I don't use the quantity I buy on time which isn't thrifty at all. Today I learned how simple it is to freeze fresh broccoli and cauliflower. If I had a garden, this would be a great way to have fresh vegetables year round. I froze both broccoli and cauliflower, and it was so quick I have no excuse not to do it next time. Recipe courtesy of wikihow.com.
