Now What?

So, now what to do with the bounty of produce from our grocery trip this morning?

The strawberries have been cleaned and frozen for use in smoothies and breakfast ice cream (recipe courtesy of The Sneaky Chef). The grapes have been washed and cleaned and will be quickly eaten by the handful by DH. Bananas - I left 3 out for little man and froze 2 to use in breakfast ice cream. I will use several of the lemons to make a double batch of lemon blueberry muffins. Half of the peaches will be used for a peach cobbler for dessert tonight and the other half will be peeled, chopped and frozen to use in smoothies.

I wish I could say that we'll eat all this right away and not need to freeze any of it. Although, I'd rather stock up a bit now while the quality and prices are good so we can enjoy great produce this fall and winter too.

How do you handle great deals on produce? I'd love some other ideas!
