I’m not much of a leftovers kind of girl. I’ll maybe eat something from the day before but that’s pretty much pushing it. That’s why I’m very careful about how much I cook and how much is left for the next day. Of course, this used to mean that I would have to carefully separate my meats into smaller portions and fill up freezer bags for future use. Such a chore!
However, Ziploc has come up with a solution . . . Ziploc Perfect Portions Freezer System. And they’re so easy to use! Just place your hand into a bag like a glove, grab your portion, turn the bag inside out, remove the excess air and twist/fold the bag close.
Then place all of your individual portions into a larger Ziploc Heavy Duty Freezer bag and you’re all set!
Not only is this great for people like me who like to cook in smaller portions but it’s also convenient for those who shop in bulk at Costco or Sam’s Club. Every time I buy ground hamburger from those stores I dread having to go home and split the pallet up because it kind of grosses me out to have pieces of raw hamburger under my nails and between my fingers.
I also received the Ziploc Smart Snap XL Bowl which is perfect for taking food to work. As a flight attendant, I get tired of the airplane food and usually bring along my own meals and snacks.
These Smart Snap Bowls are perfect for bringing along sandwich fixings like tuna or egg salad as well as packing cut up fruits and vegetables. And since you can actually hear the cover snap on, I know it won’t leak in my carry-on bag.
Ziploc and Rachael Ray have recently teamed up to launch the Great American FreshOver Project – a two year healthy living initiative encouraging families to “freshover” their outlook on eating by offering recipes, tips, and ways to use Ziploc Brand Containers and Bags. You could also win a trip for two to meet Rachael Ray in NYC by stopping by the Ziploc Brand Facebook Fan Page and posting a FreshOver food idea or tip.
In addition, Ziploc will make a donating to Rachael Ray’s nonprofit organization – Yum-O! – which brings fresh and healthy foods to families across the country. Families can support the cause by “pledging” to start their own FreshOver Project by downloading the free, customizable FreshOver Recipe Guide at Facebook.com/Ziploc. To further support Yum-O!, Rachael Ray and Ziploc will donate an additional $200,000.
