Thankfully my girlfriend, Andrea, was on board with bulk cooking some breakfasts and lunches so we got together this weekend and made our own version of Hot Pockets for our respective husbands and children. They were so good and we figured they cost us $.50 each to make, plus we can say every ingredients in them! There are more things that I want to show you how to make and I totally will when I'm recovered. Andrea and I plan to keep our version of hot pockets around as a staple.
I will leave you with this, how to chop an onion. It's really easy and generally you can do it in less time than it takes to get out those whacker thingies. And washing a knife is much faster and easier than one of those whacker things.
First, cut your onion in half from tip to root.
Chop off the tip
Rotate 90 degrees and then slice down
Now you've got some nice chopped onions. If you're most people, you're done.
You see these big pieces? They bug me.
No more big pieces!
Super easy, anyone can do it. Except Andrea who had to leave the room when I was chopping. Here's a little tip, if in your meal planning you're going to be using a lot of chopped onions, do them all at once and keep them in a glass container in the fridge. It makes life so much easier to have things prepped.
