What to do with the 1/2 bottle of wine????
Okay, so I know many of my friends would never have a problem of what to do with an extra half bottle of wine but the reality is, while I love wine my husband doesn't. So unless I want to drink an entire bottle by myself or drink 1 glass each night for 3 or 4 nights in a row, I often find myself with a portion of a bottle left over. I've solved this dilemma by freezing it! Frozen wine can be thawed and used for cooking later. I have all these little 1/2 cup (4 oz.) Rubbermaid containers that came with a combo pack I bought. They aren't good for much but they are great for this. Divvy up your wine into 4 oz. servings, pop on the lids and freeze. Next time you need some red wine for red sauce or white wine for risotto, just take it out of the freezer and you are good to go!
