One Of My Favorite Things

I want to tell y'all about one of my favorite tricks for packing lunches.

I live with several hearty eaters who have raging sweet tooth's. And not every day can there be cookies or any other dessert.

My solution? The pint size plastic deli containers you can find at restaurant supply stores. (Or at the deli counter!)

They're perfect!
Seriously, though. Instead of trying to scoop the jello or pudding once it's already been made in a big container, put whatever fruit (for jello) or Nilla wafers for banana pudding into the bottom of your containers and top with jello or pudding, refrigerate. 

Next morning, plop a container into the lunchbox along with anything else needed and ice packs. 
Boom - instant dessert, no work in the morning!

  1. I always liked the little half cup Gladware containers to make our own pudding cups. Same theory. :)

    1. Ooh, I should find those Gladware containers sometime! Using these is good in the meantime.

      Thanks for dropping by

  2. I love make ahead meals and snacks! Thank you for sharing your idea on the Art of Home-Making Mondays! :) Hope that you join in again this week!
