Try Pyrex glass dishes for meal prep | Brandon at FTC

Pyrex storage container picture
Pyrex 3-cup glass storage container with lid

One of my customers recently purchased 30 Pyrex rectangular 3-cup glass storage dishes to put their weekly meal prep individual meals into. I like them. They are a great size container for an individual meal portion, and unlike the plastic containers we usually use, they can go straight from the refrigerator into the microwave or the oven. That makes it easier for the family and cuts down on dishes to wash. I usually prepare 24 meal portions for them and the extra dishes provide storage for extra sides or sauces that go with the meals.

If you are currently having your meal prep portioned into individual containers, I suggest going to the Pyrex site and investing in some glass containers. I’m providing a link to their website and they are currently on sale for $3.24 apiece. They are regularly $6.49.

Vegan Mexican Recipe ¦ blog.friendthatcooks.com

Coriander crusted tofu

Here’s a great recipe idea for a Mexican vegan dinner. For one of our weekly meal prep customers, I coated some extra firm tofu with ground coriander, salt and pepper, then pan seared it in some corn oil. I served it with some steamed quinoa that has butter, lime juice and chopped cilantro stirred into it with a touch of salt. It also has a salad made with steamed corn off the cob, chopped red pepper, chopped onion, cilantro, lime juice, agave syrup and cumin.

What do you do with a 2lb Porterhouse? ¦ blog.friendthatcooks.com

What do you do with a monster 2.3 lb Porterhouse t-bone steak that’s as big as a chicken? Crust it in some herbs, pan sear it, and finish it in the oven for a few minutes at 425 degrees. Then, you serve it with some whipped potatoes and steamed green veggies.
