Eats and how to?

Good evening bloggies,
If this post is seeing the light of the day it is because I preplanned a bit and start writing all of my eats and then  hurriedly inserted pictures in the end to get the post up. It is Maniacal Monday and have a tons of scientific literature to read, now only if the assignment would be to read food blogs. How much fun would that be?!

Onto to my eats,

Oatmeal with figs, carob chips, almonds, flax seed and brown sugar. One of my favorite oatmeal combo!

Lunch:

Dill Rice with some celery and carrots and Brown rice instead of white. Perfect with a dollop of yogurt and some Stacy’s Pita chips on the side!

Just a simple How-to I wanted to share:

How to store Ginger?

I have always thought that Ginger is expensive and can go bad easily in the refrigerator. So it is a good idea to store it in the Freezer. Now many of you must be already knowing this trick but I thought its good to share just in case someone finds it useful.

So I wash my ginger,

Cut them into about 1” pieces

Peel the skin off

Chop the skin and store it in Tupperware to add to my Chai, so I can have some nice warmth in this freakin cold weather!

And then store these ginger pieces in a ziploc. The next time you want to add them to a dish, just grate them with a micro-zester straight from the freezer. oh yeah they grate phenomenally even if they are frozen, isn’t that cool!

In other news, it is a special day for me tomorrow πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

    that’s how i store my ginger too, in the freezer all peeled up! nice bowl of oats πŸ™‚ enjoy your special day!

  2. Wow, that bowl looks fantastic. What a way to start your day πŸ™‚

  3. Your lunch and dinner both made me drool.

  4. I always grow dill in the summertime and never know what to do with it! I saved that rice recipe to try sometime. That’s how I keep my ginger πŸ™‚

  5. Ginger always intimidates me so this post is very useful! Thank you!

    The dill rice looks great too!

  6. I always try to buy small chunks of ginger so I can use it up quickly. I had heard of storing it in the freezer, but that never quite made sense to me because it seemed like it would be harder to peel. Your post makes perfect sense! Thank you – now I can go ahead and buy the larger chunks and not lament being out of fresh ginger – I love adding ginger to just about everything. Ginger & garlic are a part of just about every stir fry dish I make.
