I actually love these containers. I have a tendency to leave containers of food in the back of my fridge well into their fuzzy stages. (gross, I know.) With the cheap plastic ones, I would have had to throw them out entirely, container and all, because the smell never comes out of it. With these, the glass (and even the lids) are just like new after one cycle in the dishwasher. And I'm convinced that my food actually stays good for longer with these containers.

I've been loving this for breakfast all week long. My husband has now dubbed this dish "peanut butter puddle".

To get rid of a whole bunch of leftover roast chicken, I made a chicken pot pie. I used a bag of frozen veggies, a potato, chicken stock and some flour to thicken. Then poured the soupy veggie stuff into a baking dish with the leftover chicken and layered some pie dough on top. Could not have been easier and kept the hubby well-fed for days. :-)

This is such a great idea. I've just been feeling guilt about the tons of bags of clothing I've been meaning to get rid of that are just cluttering my hallway. I could also easily see doing this with books too.

When we have houseguests (who are not staying longer than a week) we don't allow them to do any cleaning or cooking. It's just the way that I like to host, and it keeps me calm since I'm a bit possessive of my kitchen.

We had a guest staying with us who was going to a wedding the next day and we didn't have an iron or ironing board, so he went out and bought them and left them as a housewarming gift for us. I don't expect our houseguests to buy us gifts, but I like how he saw something missing from our home and filled it.

I agree with LilyC that sometimes the best thing a houseguest can do is just go out on their own so I have some time alone.
