If you are a longtime blog follower of mine you will know I’m not a cook. That is because I do not enjoy cooking. Of course that could be because no one in my family enjoys the same types of food. My husband doesn’t even like peanut butter. How can you not like peanut butter?
I was recently introduced to a product that has not yet been released called “The Bag Holder“it is like having an extra pair of hands in the kitchen. I guess that is the next best thing to my hands NOT being in the kitchen. One of my downfalls is preparation. I’m never prepared for dinner. The question that I hate most in my house is “What’s for dinner?” After watching some of the videos about The Bag Holder what intrigued me the most was the idea of story food in bags. Seems like a pretty easy idea, why I never thought of it before I have no idea! I currently store my items in Tupperware containers, which equal a lot of space taken up. Space that I don’t have with six people living in my house.
I also don’t know much about freezing dinners. Again another “here’s your sign” moment. I found the videos of how you can mix all the found in a bag and freeze it for later cooking fascinating. Yes you can laugh at my total lack of cooking knowledge. If I could throw together 3 or 4 meals, freeze them and simply grab, cook, and eat I would be doing a lot better than I am now.
However you may be asking how all this pertains to an item called a bag holder. The freezing of dinners, the storage issue, and many of the suggestions are based on using a bag versus a plastic container. What the bag holder does is allows you to easily without mess store, mix, and freeze your food. Using any gallon size bag you fit your bag over The Bag Holder and it stays snugly into place. It is your extra set of hands. While it stays in place you can pick up your cans, bowls, etc and drop the food right into the bag with no worries of the bag slipping and spilling. Usually you have to keep one hand on the bag at all times when trying to bag items but not with The Bag Holder.
Imagine Thanksgiving dinner, everyone has left and you are saddle with cleaning up the mess. You of course don’t want to throw out all that food tomorrow after your 2 am Black Friday shopping spree you are going to want another helping of turkey and mashed potatoes and gravy. Everyones watching football or napping and you are in the kitchen all by yourself. Pull out your Bag Holder grab that heavy pot of potatoes with two hands and spoon it right into the bag. No mess, no need to figure out how you are going to transfer from pot to bag with only two hands.
The great thing about using bags to store your food over plastic storage containers is that you can shape the bags as needed to fit in your fridge. Lay them flat, tilt, shake you name it get it just how you need it. Also when you are ready to eat it is just as easy. Grab your Bag Holder, pop your bag on and spoon out our food. When done zip it back up and throw it back in the fridge.
So remember The Bag Holder – Don’t be left holding the bag!
For taking the time to learn about this soon to be released product. The Bag Holder is giving you the chance to win a night eating out, just to forget to bag your leftovers.
