Because my husband and I both work full time, meal planning is imperative in order to avoid the fast food traps. If we are not prepared for dinner, it is very easy to throw up our hands and turn into the drive thru lane of the closest restaurant. Because our budget (or our waistlines) can’t withstand this choice several times a week, we take great care to plan our weekly meals every Saturday.
We have found the pre-preparing our meals on Sunday works very well! Chopping, mixing and assembling ingredients ahead of time cuts down on the amount of cooking time needed when we arrive home on the weekdays, and in turn affords us more time to play with the kids. This week, I was so happy to be introduced to some great time saving products from Pyrex!
My kitchen was graced with a package of some of the coolest time saving tools. As I unpacked the box, I decided to have a baking session with my five year old daughter who loves to be in the kitchen. Using the pinch bowls (which allowed me to measure the ingredients and my daughter the freedom to add them to the bowl) and small spatula, we not only created some delicious brownies, but some wonderful memories as well.
“….No-Leak Lids eliminate accidental drips, drops and dribbles, making them perfect for keeping and carrying soups, sauces and salsas that slosh. The airtight seal keeps food fresh, while a microwave vent allows neat heating.”
In these glass dishes, you can prepare, assemble, cook, store and reheat the same meal! No need to transfer a cooked meal to a storage container! We prepared a casserole on Sunday night and placed it in the refrigerator. On Monday, we cooked the casserole and served for dinner. Leftovers were stored in the same dish covered with the No-Leak Lid and reheated on Wednesday for a second meal! So easy and FAST!
