I feel like I've been inundated lately with articles and discussions about why plastic food storage is bad for you. Some tell you that harmful chemicals leach into your food during freezing and reheating. Other sources tell you that as long as it says "microwave-safe" you're fine. The jury is out on a definitive answer.
Still, the Mr and I have decided to play it safe and we're making the switch to glass food storage. Since I am cooking and freezing more foods, it make sense to use containers that transition better for reheating. Mr has been packing his lunch for work in an effort to eat healthier, which means I am not the only one trying to repurpose leftovers or make portable meals. Time to replenish the stock.
This is not revolutionary. I am hardly the first person to say "hmm maybe all this plastic isn't as great as it first seems." Pretty sure Grandma thought of it first. After Mr CF read an article about make-ahead meals specifically meant to be layered into mason jars, I was sold.
