I was making the Enchiladas last night and had to make a quick stop at the grocery store on the way home (yes, I AM aware that I'm on a Pantry Challenge, and I only spent $8.48 on a GIFT card ... was challenging to say the least) ...
So, one of the things I needed was green onions. 2 bunches for $1.19. ???? Wow, those got expensive. Didn't they use to be like 3 for $1 or something like that??
So I grabbed the 2 healthiest looking bunches (not so great really) and brought them home.
Which prompted me to get a flashlight and walk out to the garden to confirm something: Yes, there they are. In the ground, waving their little green thingys at me in the dark.
Here's a tip to avoid that cost again! Cut off the white bulby part with a little bit of the fading in to green area. Stick the root part into dirt, cover a little (not totally) and wait. Just a little while (a few days) and you will see the green shoots coming up. As that's the only part that I use (I think that's the case with MOST people) it's perfect. When you need some green onion, simply take your scissors and cut off what you need, bring it in, rinse and use. (oh by the way, we are in the midst of our garden season here in south Florida ... had to tie up my tomato plant as it's gotten HUGE and the wind has not been kind the past few days)
