    freeze your bananas with a bit of cinnamon, clove and nutmeg and a spoonful of brown sugar, peel banana and put it in a freezer bag the more spotty the better, put in spices zip locked getting as much air out, then smash until mushy, put in freezer until you want to make banana bread. if you like raisins in your banana bread toss them in also, they plump up and absorb flavors,

    saute’ your onions in a bit of olive oil, and add celery, carrots anything you like, a dash of beef or chicken paste bullion and freeze , toss frozen in the crock pot when you began to cook a meal and the meat or chicken will cook in the sautéed flavorful mix which thaws quickly.
