This week Rubbermaid is helping keep New Years Resolutions on track with a giveaway of the new Glass Easy Find Lids 8-Piece Set.

Reincarnating The Leftover

If your family is like my family, they don’t like to eat leftovers.  So what you’re left with at the end of the week is a lot of food to throw out.

Not only do I use my leftovers, I actually plan my weekly family dinner menu so that I intentionally have leftovers.  For example, when I saute chicken to make Chicken Madeira, I’ll cook more than I need and store the extra cooked chicken to use later on in the week for another recipe like Tomato Basil & Chicken Penne or Chicken Enchiladas.  I slice up leftover London Broil and store to make French Dip Sandwiches the next day.

By reincarnating my leftover food, dinner takes just a few minutes some nights.  Cooked food should be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator.  The Rubbermaid Glass Easy Find Lids 8-Piece Set are perfect for storing my food and keeping it fresh.  Plus, the easy-to-find lid system makes it simple by eliminating the search for the exact size lid… and we all know how much I love to save time!

Here are some examples of ways to “reincarnate” your leftover using the Rubbermaid Glass Easy Find Lid Set:

Homemade Chicken Tenders

Leftover Homemade Chicken Tenders can be stored and used later in the week for a delicious, easy dinner like Buffalo Chicken Wraps or Chicken Parmesan.
