These new Rubbermaid® BRILLIANCE™ food storage containers are my new favorite. I especially like using them for my husband’s lunches! This is the reason why ~ Rubbermaid® BRILLIANCE™ containers are guaranteed 100% leak proof and they’re stain and odor resistant! They work perfectly for my man to brownbag it without any mess. Because if there is a mess, well let’s not even go there.
The routine in my kitchen is, I always prepare extra at meal time so that we have leftovers for my hubby to carry to work. He enjoys bringing a lunch from home and getting some fresh air as opposed to dining out at noon. My suspicion is after he eats – he naps. Just sayin’! Because we almost always have leftovers there are constantly food storage containers in the fridge. I have a pet peeve when it comes to round storage. I don’t know about you but all the refrigerators I’ve ever seen are box shaped. This means rectangular or square shaped containers fit so much better on the shelves. Another reason why I like the Rubbermaid® BRILLIANCE™, they are rectangular in shape.
This past weekend we had another cold snap and I made one of my man’s most-liked meals ~ beef stew. He was pretty excited to know that he could take it for lunch this week. I also made a big salad and homemade dressing. I love oil and vinegar dressings but do you know what a disaster it would be if the dressing leaked out in his lunch bag? Yikes! But guess what? Not a drop seeped out of the Rubbermaid® vessel. 100% guaranteed leak-proof. Win-Win!
Here is what I do when prepping his lunches:
- Fill one container with salad greens and toppings
- Pour enough salad dressing for one serving in a separate container
- Store fresh fruit, applesauce, cheese cubes, etc. in another container
- Place a roll, slice of bread, or crackers in a vessel
- Fill one container with the main course, in this case Beef Stew
- Stack all the containers together on a shelf in the fridge, so in the morning all the hubby has to do is place it in his brown bag or lunch box!
- The alternative to this method is to have him prepare all his lunch items in Rubbermaid® BRILLIANCE™ storage containers himself! (I like this plan best)
