We are full swing into summer, which means things are HEATING up around Oklahoma right now! I know they say that you get used to this heat, but I can tell you after living here my entire life…that is a LIE! There is just no way that you ever get used to this heat, it’s like the suffocating heat that just takes your breath and energy away the second you walk outside the door.
I guess at some point though, you do learn to push through it, especially when fresh produce and farmers markets are at stake. One of my favorite joys of the summer months are all the fresh produce that is just beautiful and delicious. Although in the past, I would just walk out to my garden and pick my own, this year we opted out of a garden so I’m trusting in the farmers market for my fresh produce.
One thing that I’ve learned over the years, is you have to store it well to keep it lasting a bit longer. We prefer most of our produce cold and in the fridge as opposed to leaving it out on the counter. One thing we pick up regularly are juicy strawberries. I absolutely LOVE these as snacks for my family. Sadly, last year we learned my daughter is allergic to them, but my son and husband eat them by the handful.
Now, it’s just a fact in our house, most of my storage dishes are missing lids. I swear the dishwasher eats them. That’s where Glad Press’n Seal comes to my rescue! I was a bit skeptical at first of how well this really holds up, but my skepticism diminished as I sealed up strawberries in a glass dish. Once I had them sealed I had my son turn over the dish and shake it as hard as he could. Guess what?
Not a single one fell out! NONE!
We were all impressed, even my daughter thought this ‘game’ was fun too! This works perfectly for us when it comes to cutting up fresh fruit and veggies to store in the fridge over the summer. Not only does it work for that, but we have cookouts regularly too, so we can use the Glad Press’n Seal to keep our foods ‘fly’ free while it is sitting outside on the table waiting to be served or waiting to be cleaned up.
I picked up both a 70 sq Foot Roll & 140 sq foot roll at Walmart to keep them on hand for a variety of uses. Another way we are loving using this is as a lid for my son. The majority of his cups do not have lids anymore, but I don’t want him taking a drink in the living room without a lid. This way, I can create my own lid for him and he can actually take his drink in the living room without having to go buy special cups. He absolutely LOVED this.
