What To Do With Leftovers

 So I made pumpkin muffins the other day (recipe coming shortly) and was left with a whole heck of a lot of pumpkin puree. 

Don't throw it out! 

Just portion it into zip top baggies to freeze!

I labeled the baggies BEFORE I put anything in them.  Because you will forget what is inside in a month.  I promise- this is important.  Then I measure out exactly one cup. Squeezed the air out and pressed flat.  They take up almost no freezer space like this.  And to use later, simply defrost over night in the fridge.

Easy peasy lemon squeezy!

Waste not, want not, right?!
