|Sistema food storage|
Okay -- I have an odd obsession for cooking ware, shoes, red wine, my coffee cup(s), and M&M's. The latest COOL thing I (or shall I say we...more like HE(Spencer) found) -- Sistema food storage containers. He is notorious for leaving Tupperware where ever he goes; just like me with my glass cups. When we moved I went through the plastic and narrowed it down to about 10 pieces. Perfect -- we are very space challenged here in Newps. But, low & behold he comes back from a trip to Ikea with a 20ish pack of containers -- those have since been stored in a cupboard so high I have to be wearing heels, or jump in order to reach them. While at our favorite grocery store the other day (Fresh & Easy) we came across these Plastic Containers which we've been fascinated by when they were first put on the shelves wickedly over priced....
Well, once day while participating in Sunday Funday with Becca & Jake I saw that $6 "perfect yogurt container" was on sale for $2. I quickly swooped two of them. Spencer later dubbed them "blue for boy, green for girl" -- that has actually been a theme of my dinning ware since the first meal I fed him close to a year ago now (WOOOOWWWWZER!).
So, what's this big deal? Well, these are the neatest most amazing plastic containers on earth! They are from New Zealand -- they are not your typical Ziploc. Sistema makes all of their products out of recycled plastic. The one I have dubbed the 'perfect yogurt container' is round and can fit about 2-3 cups of food in it -- BUT, it gets better -- they are divided AND it come with the appropriate (and color coordinated) flatware! Let's face it, there is nothing worse than soggy granola in your yogurt in the morning! With the Sistema you can separate your food until you are ready to eat!
So -- the story gets better! All of the sudden we happened to come across the salad/lunch containers on sale the other day! Don't you worry, we now own them. Same story, separate your your salad from its toppings -- there is EVEN a spot specifically for just the right amount of dressing (there is nothing worse than a soggy salad!), a fork, a knife -- you are in business!
If you are interested in investing in some awesome plastic containers try to find where Sistema is sold near you, I guarntee you won't be bummed -- plus they look totally awesome and they have proven to be WICKED durable!
