I try and plan my meals before a trip in order to avoid the food I have going to waste. This year we have had a few instances when that was not possible but I have discovered what I can store in the freezer.Milk goes in right in the container, all my cheese, any cooked vegetable gets frozen then blended for soup stock, whole fruit gets blended into smoothies or cocktails with no need to unthaw. Grape tomatoes I freeze whole and use for sauce or roast in the oven and avocados frozen whole go into smoothies. My eggs I break individually and beat with 1/4 cup salt and they can be used for scrambled eggs or for baking.

I like the idea I don't have to waste food and when we do get home, I have the makings of a simple supper in just a few minutes.

I don't think I've ever been gone long enough that eggs have gone bad. They keep for a long while past the sell-by date.

Sorry - I meant to write 1/4 tsp. salt NOT 1/4 cup.
