Well, I am finally home after a very long trip! It was wonderful to see everybody and to be up north again and get a small taste of fall, but it is also wonderful to be home again!
As soon as I got home I felt an urge to 'fluff up my nest' after not homemaking for such a long time. One of my first projects was to organize my storage container drawer. On my trip I found a good deal on Pyrex glass storage containers with lids. (I think some stores still have a $10 dollar rebate deal) I believe glass is much healthier for us than plastic. They last longer and don't absorb food odors or stains. Also, my husband is always preaching to me about 'dish economy'. :) With these, you can cook the food, store it in the refrigerator, reheat in the oven/toaster oven or microwave, or even put them in the freezer. So hopefully I am phasing out plastic.
This is a photo of before. It had been a while since I had organized!
Here is a picture of after...and it left my top drawer completely empty for something else!
I think it's an improvement, don't you? :)
Another reason I am glad from being done with traveling for a while is trip food! I knew we'd been on the road too long when Chance was saying grace and said, 'Thank you for my daily corn dog.' :) I think the poor boy needs some good home cooking! So hopefully I will be posting more recipes soon and often again!
Thanks for your patience with me! Have a great day!
