As a person who has “issues” with containers, this was a big step for me.
Recently, I overheard someone mention that she uses a label-maker to label all her containers of leftovers.
For some reason, this makes me giggle. I know it’s a good idea, but it’s one of those things I know I’d never do in a million ba-jillion years.
But I did feel the need to label one container. Specifically, a container that looks like it should have butter in it.
Y’know. Because it says “butter” on the outside.
It’s difficult to describe the disappointment you feel when you toast a piece of homemade (by someone else) bread, pull out the butter container, open it up, and find . . . last week’s casserole.
So I labeled the container. Permanently. I labeled it with the only information I really want to know:
Do you label leftovers?
