Let’s talk about leftoversssss. Well, not so much the leftovers but where do you put them?
By now, you know that I prefer to make BIG meals and eat on the dish over the course of a few days. This keeps me out of the kitchen for every single meal where I can spend more time with my family and writing these posts 😁
After we wrap up the meal the first night, we need to pick up the rest of the dish right? Well you COULD use an old margarine container, but I have a better idea.
I’m not going to claim that I only have the food storage listed below, I have a few plastic containers that I just can’t let go of. But over time I plan to switch my entire cabinet to what is listed below.
And I feel the need to remind you that these are nice to have and not NEED to have. I don’t want you to spend your last dollar on these, but if you have boring interests like pantry organization (like lil ole me) and you’re looking for a last-minute Mother’s Day gift…. Send this to your kids or partner 🤪
Let’s shop leftover storage!
- Pyrex 3 cup Meal Prep Containers – These were my go-to for bringing pre-portioned meals to work. It’s the perfect size for lunch. Plus, when the lids start to crack (it’s inevitable) you can buy replacements here.
- Pyrex 11 cup Food Storage Container – These are perfect for a big pasta dish or a roast.
- Pyrex 3 quart Bake and Store Pan – I’m not entirely sure why these aren’t more popular but I love the fact that you can make a casserole or a big cornbread in this dish and then store it in the fridge in the exact same container. I love it so amazing 🤩
- Pyrex Round Containers Set – For leftover soups, gravies, etc. I don’t grab these as often but they are always nice to have.
- Corningware Mug Storage with Lid – These can be made for individual French onion soups, desserts, or soup storage. We have a 6 pack and they are well used.
- CorningWare 14 piece Bakeware set – This was a wedding gift and it’s such a nice set to have! This is another bake to store set and the pans are so pretty. I do wish the larger pans had handles for placing in and out of oven.
