When supper is over & I ’ megabyte packing up versatile leftovers for the electric refrigerator, I don ’ triiodothyronine reach for credit card food storage dishes. Oh no !
I ’ ve always hated those stained credit card storage bowl with their mountains of mis-matched lids that cascade from my cabinets when I ’ five hundred open them. I a lot prefer to use Glass in my refrigerator anyhow. So normally I grab one of these CorningWare dishes with its glass hat .
I have respective sizes so I can find one that fits that large pot of beans or the modest serve of leftover green beans from the garden. No onionskin credit card food storage dishes for me !
