Proof I am turning into my grandmother…


…Storing leftover chopped onions in a Talenti sorbetto container.

You should see my freezer, which is jam packed with quarts of Stoneyfield yogurt containers that actually contains my ice cream maker experiments! Recipes and pictures of that to come, because the Internet is severely lacking in sweet tea ice cream recipes, so I made my own!

I think to think that the re-using plastic containers meant that my Mimi was way ahead of the times when it came to being green, even though she did it because it saved money. We also learned really quickly as kids to open the box our presents came in, because it was rarely what was pictured on the outside!

Do you use yogurt, ice cream, or butter containers as cheapo tupperware at your house, or do you spring for the non labeled stuff?
