Love your leftovers
In rich countries we waste 222 million tonnes of food a year as consumers. That's as much as the net production of food in Sub-Saharan Africa. By planning our meals better and loving our leftovers, we can reduce this waste, saving food and greenhouse emissions.

Freeze green onions in water bottles - shake out the right amount and return to the freezer! You always have to buy so many green onions and recipes usually never call for more than 3 stalks. - what a good idea
Freeze green onions in water bottles - shake out the right amount and return to the freezer! This is great! You always have to buy so many green onions and recipes usually never call for more than 3 stalks. (just need an alternative to the plastic bottle)
To freeze green onions or other fresh herbs use plastic drink bottles as handy dispensers. Put them into a clean old water bottle, use a permanent marker to label the bottle cap with the contents. Freeze. To use remove the cap, shake out just as much as you need, replace the cap and return to the freezer. The clear bottle allows you to quickly see what’s inside, and shaking things out of a bottle is quick and easy.

Bakergirl: Pumpkin Spice Syrup recipe for Homemade Pumpkin Spice Lattes or non caffeinated hot drinks :)
Pumpkin Spice Syrup for Homemade Pumpkin Spice Lattes 1/3 cup pumpkin puree (fresh or canned) 1 cup sugar 1/2 teaspoon vanilla 1 1/4 cups water 1 teaspoon cinnamon 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg 1/4 teaspoon cloves 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger Combine all ingredients in a saucepan and bring to a boil. Cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally to keep syrup from burning. Let mixture cook together until it becomes syrup-y and begins to coat the spoon (for about 10-15 minutes), then remove from heat. Refrigerate in a heat-proof container. The syrup will thicken a bit in the refrigerator, but will become syrup-y again when heated. To make pumpkin spice latte, heat syrup with milk (about 2 cups of milk and 2-3 tablespoons of syrup, depending on how much milk or creamer you want to use and how pumpkin-y sweet you want your latte. I usually use about 2 tablespoons syrup + 2-3 tablespoons of heavy cream to cut down on the sugar.). Pour into a blender or whisk until frothy, for about ten seconds (to make it thick and prevent the pumpkin from settling on the bottom). Pour into cup and stir in about 1/2 cup or more of strong, hot coffee. Top with whipped cream, a swirl of caramel sauce, and a sprinkle of cinnamon, pumpkin pie spice, or nutmeg. Enjoy!

Watermelon Rind is really similar in texture & taste to green papaya. To begin a watermelon rind salad peel the watermelon & season rinds w/brown sugar & vacuum seal. Refrigerated several hours to marinate. Then cut rinds into batons for salad. They are crisp and juicy, with a slight acidity. You may also marinate w/brown sugar, lime juice & zest. Then bake at 200F for an 1h30, then turn off oven, & leave overnight. It gives you a chewy texture like dried apricot with nice tanginess.
Watermelon Rind Salad: Season the rinds with brown sugar and vacuum sealed. Refrigerated for several hours to marinate. Then the bag and cut the rinds into batons for the salad. They are crisp and juicy, with a slight acidity and a floral fruity flavor.
