I will first state, I hate plastic containers. I have a million, always missing a lid, never the right size. I like them to be stack able to fit in my refrigerator. I feed a family of 5 and if I keep everything rotated, then I have very little waste and it in turns saves me money.
I basically cook everything, sometimes I will buy a pre-made if I need a quick potato salad.
My husband takes his lunch every day. I make usually a sandwich and if there are any salads left I try to find that right sized container to fit in that lunch box.
This week I decided to try a new thing. You will need a 16oz cup, sandwich baggies, (I used quart for my husband because he wanted more) and your salad.
Insert one baggie into the cup and pull over the sides.
|little larger portion for the husband..|
Now when my husband takes his lunch, he puts a red cup and a fork in his lunch bag, and takes a bag of salad. Slips it back into the cup and peels back the bag. There you go a great salad and when you are finished throw the bag away and put the cup up for another day.
I am going to try to do a regular lettuce salad in them and use smaller snack baggies for the toppings. I will let you know how it goes.
I wanted to share our new idea for lunch. Things cost a lot and waste is not an option.
If you ever have a great idea, feel free to drop me a comment and I will certainly share.
I guess I just dream up stuff all the time to share with everyone. I am a wealth of information of all the little stuff.
My blog has been a place which gets my mind going with all the things I want to share.
I hope you enjoy ...
Have a great day...get out there and make it yours!
