Tips from Housewife : Sliced Mushroom

My mum gave me some frozen sliced mushroom and I thought she is mad for soaking the mushrooms, slicing them thin and nicely, separate them in small packets and froze them. Then, when I used it to cook for my family, I thought it's a fantastic idea. Cos I don't need to pre soak and slice it myself. Especially when you're in a hurry and the darn mushroom is still so hard and takes forever to be soft! So, thanks mum for sharing her Housewife tips. And who says Housewives are brainless people? They think and experiment stuff like this to make the housework faster and easier for them. They make things look to damn easy and that's why everyone thought that housewives work is so damn easy.

First you soak it.
Slice it nicely
Pack it separately according to the amount that you will normally use.
Freeze it.

P/S: I'll be sharing the tips I get from my mum (and from her friends) here from now on so that I can refer it myself. Don't have much capacity in my brain, if you know what i mean. *lol*
