If you read my blog often, you know that I love to freeze leftovers. I freeze just about anything whether I think it will work or not. I’m always pleasantly surprised when I freeze things like sour cream and use them later in a cake and it works fabulously!
One of the tricks of freezing things is packaging them properly. I use freezer bags and lots of plastic containers. When OXO recently sent me their new Good Grips LockTop Containers to try for free, I was ecstatic!
As part of the OXO Blogger Outreach Program, I get to try their new products out. This time, not only do I get to try them but one of my readers will too! I am giving away two different packages of Good Grips LockTop Containers: four mini containers:

All you need to do to enter is leave a comment telling me your favorite freezing trick. It could be an item you normally wouldn’t think to freeze or a favorite way to freeze something. I will randomly draw a name this coming Wednesday at 5PM EST.
Thursday evening, I wasn’t super hungry for dinner and my husband was working late so I simply heated up some Amy’s Chunky Tomato Bisque soup.
Along with the soup, I made a simple mixed green salad.
Even though I said I wasn’t very hungry, I still had a bit of room for some of my son’s birthday cake. :)
Friday’s breakfast was pineapple Chobani, homemade granola and berries.
I took the kids to school and met a friend at Pure Barre. I’ve never tried Pure Barre before so I was really excited!
From Pure Barre’s website: “Pure Barre is a total body workout that lifts your seat, tones your thighs and burns fat in record-breaking time. Utilizing the ballet barre to perform small isometric movements set to fantastic music, Pure Barre is the fastest, most effective, yet safest way to change your body. Students see results in just 10 classes.”
Um…that workout was no joke. It was hard! I am STILL really sore a few days later! Who knew that using light weights and doing such little movement would result in burning in my muscles!
After the workout, I went grocery shopping and came home for lunch.
Roast beef sandwich on whole wheat bread and a Greek-style salad.
I picked up the kids from school and started getting food ready for my son’s birthday party the next day.
For dinner, I made one of my favorite recipes of all time: Indian Butter Chicken:
Recipe to come later this week!
Yesterday’s breakfast was a toasted English muffin with homemade peanut butter and honey.
Yesterday was my son’s birthday party. First we had a party at the bowling alley and then a ton of family came back to our house for swimming and a barbeque. I didn’t take a single picture. I was super busy getting everything ready and doing all the cooking and just didn’t have a chance. But just in case you’re curious, here was my menu:
Crack Brownies (this time using Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups instead of the Symphony Candy Bars—the PB cups were AMAZING!)
This morning was back to business as usual with breakfast. I had my favorite pineapple Chobani yogurt again with the last of my granola and some berries. Looks like I need to make more granola!
Today I’ve been cleaning, cleaning, cleaning. The mess from yesterday never seems to end.
Lunch was leftover Mexican Bean Salad, veggies and a yummy dip I made yesterday: Herb Dip.
I figured a needed a lunch full of veggies since tonight is HOT WING night! Yeehaw!!
