- Grind or chop leftover roast or meatloaf, add a little onion, ketchup or tomato paste and use it for stuffed baked green peppers.
- One of the recipes below says to add 3 Tbsp. or sugar and 1 tsp. of vanilla to the whipped topping. You can add these ingredients to less expensive whipped topping when you use it to give it a richer taste and make it taste more like the more expensive whipped topping.
- With picnics and outdoor barbecues, we often use paper plates, cups and disposable silverware. To save time, store all of these things with a few napkins in an plastic container. Then, when you are getting ready for your party, just grab your container and you’ll have it all right there.
