Leftovers

Lauren made an excellent dinner the other night. She cooked a Turkey London Broil in the crock-pot. She also whipped up some home made mashed potatoes and some turkey gravy. There were plenty of leftovers for another night. As I was cleaning up the table and doing the dishes (one of the reasons that I won the Sexiest Husband award 2 years in a row) I had to wrap up all the leftovers. I wrapped the remaining turkey in foil and the mashed potatoes in a Tupperware type container. There was plenty of gravy that needed to be stored as well.

I went through the cabinets looking for the right size container for the gravy. I looked at the measuring cup pitcher thing, which, the gravy was served, and saw that there was about eight ounces left. I looked at some of the Glad containers and they were either too big or too small. I could have just put plastic wrap over the measuring cup but what if we need to use the measuring cup for another meal? I needed to find something else. While going through the cabinets I saw the perfect container. It was designed to hold liquid. It had measuring lines on the side and it would not take up too much room in the fridge. It was also a container we would not need for a little while.

So I put the gravy into one of Wyatt’s bottles and put it in the fridge.

Lauren did not like my selection of containers

Hee hee! I think that's hysterical! It shows "creative thinking'.

Forget putting gravy into a baby bottle...let's go back to the dishes and cleaning the table part...you actually do that?!?


Would you show my husband?

Adapt, improvise, overcome.
Some people say why...
William says why not...
It is this right brained thinking that makes you who you are.


Now put a nipple on it and start sucking turkey gravy.

I think it's ingenius.

Well it certainly gives a whole new meaning to the colloquialism, "baby gravy". :D

Great blog!

Is that how you keep Wyatt so cute and happy? Feeding him gravy by the bottle-full? Interesting...I'm not sure we'll be adopting that theory...

too funny!

Sounds like a great idea to me!

Hmmmm... Interesting. I don't know if I'd complain if my husband were doing that sexy stuff.

Also great to bring milk to work in...people will never steal it out of the fridge.

Would you tell my husband too? I cook, you CLEAN, get-it?

I wouldn't mind where he put the gravy, as long as it was off the table. Very creative.

At least you saved the gravy - that's the best part! I've got a tonne f brand new never been used yet bottles. I think they will be put to good use now :)

As long as it gets a label, any container or even a zipper bag is fine.
I go nuts if something is in the fridge without what it is and the date clearly written on tape on the container.
Too many years in foodservice, I guess.

I bet the gravy would re-heat just fine in that bottle, too. I can just see the Thanksgiving table with gravy bottles lined up instead of gravy boats. :-)

I think your choice was pretty darn good...hey, it had lines and a lid, what more do you need?
