Want a Sandwich?

Want a Sandwich Too?
I love the holidays so much, but with all the heavy food I sometimes just want a simple sandwich!  So today on Christmas Day, between the feasting, I made myself a chopped egg sandwich with some grape tomatoes and mixed fruit.  The chopped egg had paprika gingerly sprinkled on top.
My Dream Sandwich
I made the egg salad sandwich just so, with fresh Villaggio bread and sliced it into two halves.  I daydreamed about sinking my teeth into the rustic bread, and then feeling the coarsely chopped egg in my mouth.  For an acid taste, I imagined piercing the tomatoes with my canine teeth.
My Son Plundered My Sandwich!
But my dream wasn't to be, and my son was also admiring my sandwich.  I sure hope it was good, because not a crumb was left!  Happy Holidays!

Food Storage Is a "Snap" With Rubbermaid Easy Find Lids Containers!

Rubbermaid Easy Find Lids Containers
Lids Snap Beneath for Storage
Not long ago I wrote about my sad little cupboard of mismatched plastic lids and containers. Perhaps you have one too? Even when I moved homes almost 16 months ago, I just packed up the entire collection of plastic containers and mismatched lids. Then, I unloaded them unceremoniously into my new kitchen cupboards. As a busy mom of 5, I can forgive myself for minor indiscretions like these!

I recently had the chance to try Rubbermaid Easy Find Lids Containers, and reorganized my plastic container cupboard.  I love that the containers nest inside of one another--and all the matching lids snap into the bottom of the containers.  It's a very convenient system, and actually hard to lose the partner lid.  See the photo below for a "before" and "after" shot of my cupboard.  The Rubbermaid Easy Find Lids Containers are shown on the bottom shelf, in the photo on the right.
Trying the Rubbermaid Easy Find Lids Containers System
Do you notice the difference in the before and after photos?  I do, and I no longer dread opening the pantry--ducking as containers and lids alike come bouncing out like plastic missiles!  Making lunches for the kids, storing leftovers, and bringing treats to friends during the holidays just got much easier!

Rubbermaid Easy Find Lids Containers Are "Snappy"
  • Lids snap together and to container bases, so you can always find the right lid
  • Graduated sized containers nest for compact storage
  • One lid fits multiple bases
  • Square shape for optimal space utilization
  • Microwave- / Freezer- / Dishwasher-Safe
  • Thick, durable container walls for everyday use
  • Bases and Lids are BPA-FREE
