When it comes to "adulting" , the only thing I've mastered wholeheartedly is wine. Since, responsibility comes with the job, I'm slowly learning to juggle that as it comes, but I had no idea that Tupperware and Tupperware parties were a thing. A month ago, a friend of mine invited me over to her place for a Tupperware party. I wasn’t sure what to expect at first because my idea of “Tupperware” was plastic containers for leftovers and I usually buy those from the dollar store. Needless to say, I’ve been missing out because Tupperware is much more than that. At the party, we drank cocktails, eat hors d’oeuvres, and went through all of the products offered in the catalog. I was lowkey mind blown! There were so many interesting, useful things in the Tupperware catalog and, unlike my dollar store stash, they were all really great quality. Here are a few of my favorite items:
These containers caught my eye immediately because I spend a bunch of money on fruits and veggies, but since I’m a single and living with a hectic schedule, my produce goes bad fairly often. I always get frustrated because I feel like I’m wasting money and regular storage containers don’t seem to help. The FridgeSmart containers have a superior venting system that controls airflow and moisture. They can prevent hundreds of dollars worth of food waste, especially if you’re a fresh fruit and veggie lover. Some people have been able to use certain fruits or veggies up to two weeks after purchase by storing them in these cute, efficient containers. If you hate wasting money on groceries, these could be a really good addition to your stash.
Microwave Breakfast Maker Set
Like I said, I’m busy most of the time, so I usually don’t get up early enough to cook breakfast. The kitchen at my job doesn’t have an oven, so most things have to be microwaved, which limits breakfast options. Tupperware has a Microwave Breakfast Maker Set that can cook french toast, oatmeal, and omelets! All you’ll need are your ingredients, the container and a microwave. I know that sounds sort of weird, but it works and the results are yummy. They even have a container that can cook pasta in the microwave as well. If you’re always up early and on the go, this is definitely worth a try.
The Power Chef System Chopper and Blender
Okay, this one is probably my favorite item. The Power Chef System has both chopping and blending ability, and it’s hand powered! It’s perfect chopping fruits, veggies or nuts. You can also use it to blend smoothies and batter mixes. I recently made a salsa using one of these cool contraptions and dare I say? It was the bomb dot com! I took the ingredients of my salsa, put them in the container, positioned the blade and lid and pulled a string. Thirty seconds later, I had fresh pico/salsa. The system comes with both a mini chopper and large chopper as well, complete with funnel and other accessories. The blade is very sharp, so be careful when using this. This system is perfect for using during power outages, beach trips or just on the go. It’s great results without the hassle or carrying around bulky parts and needing electricity. (See my salsa recipe at the end of this post and try it on your own!)
Don’t laugh, but this is adulting at its finest, huh? I honestly feel like I crossed over into some ceremonial, grown woman right of passage! Ha! Seriously though, Tupperware is actually cooler than I knew before. The products are really good quality, have lifetime warranties and there are some unique items that surpass your typical idea of food prep and storage. So, due to my excitement, I’m hosting an online Tupperware Party here on LIV Magical Blog and you’re invited!
