Tip Tuesday

Freeze soup flat in Ziploc bags

I saw this tip in a magazine, on Fannetastic Food, & then on the Pioneer Woman. It’s an easy way to store portion-controlled leftovers- and the thin sheets defrost more quickly than, say, Tupperwares of soup.

Pack lettuce at top of salad

Throw the heavy, dense ingredients on the bottom of the Tupperware and place the lettuce on top. This prevents the lettuce from becoming wilted and crushed.

Pack dressing separately

To prevent soggy salads, purchase small cups with lids or even use baggies for dressing. Or buy these ingenius plastic containers with built-in dressing cups from Glad!

Buy a cheap tumbler to keep at work

I’ve been drinking so much more water since I bought a cheap pink tumbler to keep on my desk. I only use it for water, so it never gets that gross plastic smell!
