green onions {don't throw them away!}

We use green onions a lot in our house, so we are forever buying them... but I recently saw this idea on Pinterest! I had no idea that you could just stick the green onions in a jar/glass of water and that they would continue to grow. It's kind of a "duh" / "why didn't I think of that?" thing.

I had cut these almost all the way down to where the green meets the white (they were in a shorter glass at that point)... just a few days ago. These things grow like weeds! Just snip 'em off whenever you need some green onion goodness. You can occasionally change the water and rinse off the roots, otherwise they might get a little slimy. 

It's so colorful and pretty... and it's a good way to save a few bucks, too!
