Have you decided what you will be making for Thanksgiving yet? Are you going with the traditional, tried-and-true recipes, or will you be experimenting with one of your favorite Food Network star’s recipes? I’m not quite sure what I’ll be making yet, but I won’t worry too much. One thing I do worry about on Thanksgiving is the potential for late guests and how my fridge will hold the leftovers! But this year, I have a plan. I have a feeling my Norwex silicone lids are going to come in handy!
I know people aren’t intentionally late, and anticipating this event is part of being hospitable. Usually, we hold the meal for whoever is late so we cover everything with tin foil, making sure that it is perfectly crinkled around the rims. Tin foil isn’t the best at keeping food hot for very long and creating a tight seal is tough! This year, I plan on using my Norwex silicone lids. These lids insulate longer because they create an airtight seal. In the event that I need to reheat, I can keep the lid on while I place in the oven or microwave so all the moisture and flavors don’t escape while they warm up. Since there are so many shapes and sizes of lids, I know that all my food will get covered. Use the Large Blue Lid to cover your mashed potatoes and the Green Lid to cover your cooked veggies. Use your Rectangular Lid to cover your stuffing and the Square Lid to cover your green bean casserole. The Small Round Lids are perfect for keeping your gravy and cranberry sauce just the right temperature.
When you are done with your big meal and the turkey coma is about to hit, give yourself a break with clean up! Instead of rounding up all your food storage container and making sure they have the matching lids, just seal the lids on and place in the refrigerator. Sometimes, a dish isn’t a big hit and almost the whole batch is left. Don’t struggle to stuff it in multiple food storage containers or fight with plastic wrap; instead, just slap a silicone lid over it. Since they create an airtight seal, you won’t have to worry about your leftovers going stale in the fridge.
Because of these lids, many of my worries have subsided, except my fear of a dry turkey! I look forward to trying my plan out this year because I have a feeling it will be something I am thankful for! Happy Thanksgiving!!
