Colleen's notes for this recipe:
We reuse and recycle everything we can!

Use them until you can't any longer.... then put in recyle bin!

We make wonderful fancy lunches at home and put them into take out containers and they are much better than the "store bought" meals.

We have had people ask where we bought our meals to go..... The answer: Home Sweet Home!
Make it Your Way...

Personalize This


Wash and air dry reuseable containers. Store until needed.
When a meal to go is needed, decide what container is best for the job!
Be creative!
Have Fun!

Ha ha ..I stopped buying plastic plates and cups because I just can't part with them! I can't see throwing them away when the can be washed and used again.I think I got that from my Grandma, she saved all her container too!

Woohooo, I am all about recycling too!!! I must say it comes from my Grammie as well. lol....she was big on "don't waste anything". We started the recycling bin a little over a year ago. Not sure if you are supposed to wash out stuff before you put it in the bin but I always feel compeled to do so.'s like I HAVE to wash it before it get recycled. hehe Thanks for the post Colleen. It's a great one.
