And now for the rare domestic tip. Not rare in the blogging world - mommy blogs are full of domestic tips - but rare from me.
The roommate and I have become fans of a new kitchen product: Glad Press'n Seal Wrap.
Gone are the days of wax paper - we still have some in our kitchen, but it rarely gets used. We don't use much tinfoil (Deb informs me the term is outdated; it's 'aluminum' foil).
For a while we favored those plastic covers that look like shower caps.
And of course we still use various storage containers.
But this is better.
You can put Press'n Seal wrap over an open container OR directly onto the food itself, and it sticks. It has "body" like waxed paper, seals like plastic wrap, is reusable like tin foil. Fine in the microwave, fridge, or freezer. Just the thing for covering up a sliced melon; anything else would fall off and the melon would dry out.
(I understand there are a thousand other uses as well, but let's not get carried away!)
