Easy Rainy Weather Recipe

I'm not going to church this morning, my cold is a doozy and I thought it better not to share it.  Besides, not sure Pastor Ed would appreciate my coughing, sneezing and nose-blowing from my usual seat in the front row! *Ü* 

After several days of beautiful spring-like weather, we're having a chilly, rainy day, in my neck of the woods. I know many of you are having far worse! I'm sympathetic to all of you who are crying out "ENOUGH, ALREADY" to Mother Nature. 

I decided today was a good day for a warming meal.  And I've decided to share with you!  This recipe for Mexican Lasagna is really easy and fast.  It is made in the microwave, ready in about 30 minutes, including prep time.  I'm taking the easy route...

I use my Tupperware Vent 'N Serve - Large Shallow container to nuke it, but you could use any similarly shaped 6-cup microwaveable container.  The advantage to the Vent 'N Serve container is the ability to cook, freeze, reheat & serve all in the same container.  (You could even do it in the oven, adjusting the cookware, times & temps accordingly.)  You can view and shop for Tupperware microwave cookware & reheatable containers on my website, HERE.

*Today's Organized Kitchen TIP:  Make two of these and put one in the freezer for a quick meal next week.

What a Waste!

I was reading through one of my favorite blogs yesterday, Kitchen Stewardship, and came upon these statistics. The statistics are from 2008, but the total of discarded food was predicted to be 150 billion pounds by 2009! Where is that total today, in 2011??

Tupperware has great solutions (Clear Mates, FridgeSmarts, Modular Mates, etc.) to help with this tragedy. We also have the means, parties, events, social media, cooking schools, to spread the word and educate consumers! What's my/your Tupperware mission? If I/you haven't figured that out yet, this one could be world-changing!

Imagine that... You, changing the world, one pantry or refrigerator at a time!

Sensational Salads

I LOVE cookbooks.  And, I think this one is a gem! 

Tupperware's new cookbook "Sensational Salads for You and Your Family", is a new favorite in my kitchen.  The photography is beautiful, and the recipes all look yummy.  I can't wait to try the Surf's Up Shrimp.  What's not to like about shrimp & pineapple?

You can purchse this new cookbook at my shopping website by clicking on the link in the sidebar.  The retail price is $14, plus shipping and sales tax.

Even better, I am giving away a copy!  Just become a follwer of this blog and I will enter your name into a drawing; winner to be chosen on January 28th.  **If you are already a follower, leave a comment telling me so.
