Lunchtime has been bumming us out. We've gotten very good at foregoing sandwich bags, etc in favor of reusable containers. However, until a few days ago, all of our containers were plastic.
That means, whenever we wanted to heat something, we had to take it out of the plastic and find something else to microwave it in. Because we don't heat things in plastic anymore.
Now, we're happy again.
We just bought a couple of the small rectangular Snapware Glass Lock Containers ($7.99 each) -- the perfect size for a lunchtime portion of leftover vegetarian chili (our lunch today). And we plan to purchase a few of the other sizes.
There are a few things that make these containers so great.
1) They're not plastic
2) They're really, really easy to clean
3) The smell and/or color of your lunch doesn't remain on the container after you wash it (you know what we mean)
