Food Storage Solution (in other words, things I get excited about)

September 2, 2013

Written by Marykate O’Malley, mother of three wonderful children, Gladwyne, PA

 

Freeze Mom! Drop that saran wrap!

I know, I know, you need to store the salad for the party, and put away the cheese platter until dinner. I also know you will fight and tug and try to get that bowl or platter covered and air tight. But you won’t because it is a trap. The saran wrap trap. It only wraps itself but never the item you are trying to cover. Maybe it’s me. Maybe you are all skilled saran wrappers. When I try – no wrap. Maybe it sarans – what does that mean exactly? I am sorry saran wrap. I am bitter. Bitter because this is a skill I have not mastered and I am certain there are people who have. I don’t think I will ever be counted among them.

And so imagine my delight when I was at my beautiful lovely sister in law’s baby shower and her gem of a mother was pulling delectable platters and salads from the fridge. And then she starts flinging these little covers off the bowls that look like shower caps – except they are not, they are food covers! Can you say brilliant?!

 

My beautiful sis in law – can’t wait for this baby! Blessed!

 

I searched out these little shower cap wraps and tried it out today for the first time. I made a Cobb salad with shrimp and tabbouleh for a barbeque at my other beautiful lovely sister in law’s home (blessed) and in one swift motion – food was covered and ready to go. Check out Covermates! (Sold at Target, amazon and from their website) They come in assorted sizes.

 

And most importantly, wishing all of you a fun and safe Labor Day!! Cheers!

    MaryKate – also glad to know that I am not the only one that can’t make Saran work. I have tried the name brand “Saran,” the competitor brand, the generic brand, etc. I can’t seem to make it work. I think it is magic!!!!!

    Julie – me too! It just gets all wrapped up in itself and I cant get it to stay on the platter. I think it maybe has something to do with stretching it? Will probably never know!
