Vegetable Tray

Recently, I was pondering ways to eat all of the fresh produce we love in a timely manner. More then once I have thrown something into the crisper drawer and then completely forgotten it was there only to find it has gone bad the next time I venture into that drawer. Then having to throw it out, basically throwing out cash every week.  
I found this great tray at the local dollar store and knew it would be perfect for this project.
The container was 4 large section, and one smaller section.
It was only $3.00.
Currently In Our Vege Platter:
~ Baby Carrots
~ Cucumber Slices
~ Celery Sticks
~ Pepper Slices
~ Broccoli
These Veges Would Also Work Great:
~ Cherry Tomatoes
~ Mushrooms
~ Cauliflower
~ Radishes
~ Green Beans
~ Snap Peas
I pull this tray out every day with lunch and sometimes in between for snacking.
It is great to be able to have fresh, ready to go produce ready for eating.
At the end of the week I take whatever is leftover and chop it up and add it to whatever dinner e are having that night.
Pasta, soups, stir fry, sauces.
These vegetables are so versatile that there are tons of things you can throw them into!
What are your families favorite veges for snacking on?
