This Friday was my day off, so I borrowed the BF’s car, and headed to the outlet for Pyrex. For change from $80, I got the haul above, which I’m impressed with. These things last well – not one has cracked or chipped in all the back and forth to work, and in and out of cupboards etc.
Now I have enough pyrex for lunch leftovers (I bought 9 when I first moved into the loft, for lunches). Now I have another 10 (!!) so that I can have one with bacon at almost all times, one with pepperoni, a few with a meal’s serve of meat, like chicken breasts. It’s a learning curve for deli staff in Harris Farm and Coles, but I’m patient, and mostly it works… Til I give them a flat rectangular pyrex for a large cube of feta – live and learn!
So, this week wasn’t as good as past weeks – there were three meat trays. We can’t pass up $3 for 500g of beef mince, especially when making lasagne for 8!
I should also show you the weight of the plastics that I take back to Coles, who offer a recycling program that supposedly turns certain plastics into playground furniture:
Mmmm cornchip packets…
Reader/commenter challenge: Is there a zero waste way to corn chips? I’ve never seen them in bulk, but I’ve not looked that far and wide. What would it take to make a cornchip?
