Glass Wars

In the past few months, I have really been trying to make the change to using glass in the microwave instead of plastic.  I'm almost there...I am to the point where I notice when I stick a plastic container in there!  To help with this, I've been trying to put our leftovers in glass containers whenever possible.  This makes it much easier to heat them up without having to pour them from the plastic container to a glass one.  (Plus, it cuts down on the amount of dishes in the dishwasher that we already run every day!)

I got some more glass containers in my last L&L supporter shipment, which made me extremely happy!  I have been running out of glass containers if I have too many leftovers, so this should help.

I do have some Pyrex containers that I will bake in, but honestly, I try to avoid putting leftovers in them.  I'm not just saying this...the Lock and Lock containers keep the food fresh for a whole lot longer!!  Since I'm the only one in my family who appreciates a good leftover, this is important!!

If you're looking for some cheap glass containers, there are some both in the $1 store and in the regular clearance section.  The $1 store is closing on the 14th, so you need to head there soon!
