tailgating with tupperware.

It's not really breaking news that I love tupperware. I own quite a bit of tupperware and have a pretty long list of tupperware I'm looking to add to my collection. The more I have it and use it, the more I see how functional and useful it really is.  I'm finding I use it for EVERYTHING. tailgating6The other weekend, we spent Saturday tailgating with friends.  If you tailgate like we do, you can really end up consuming a LOT of food and drinks, and a lot of it not that great for you. I used my tupperware to pack a few healthier options while we were tailgating.

On our way down to the game, I snacked on some nuts that I had packed and thrown in my purse.  It was kind of a zoo getting out the door on time that morning (the nursery was open and it's always hard to escape), and I was glad to get some healthy fats in before a day of partaking in adult beverages.tailgating1When we got there, we got all set up, and immediately started snacking.  I brought this vegetable, corn and bean salsa in my snack-stor container--I love this container and am definitely going to get another one (and a 9x13).  Of course, I made it in my tupperware chopper AND used up some of my garden vegetables. Win/Win!  Purple onion, green pepper, orange pepper, jalapeños, garlic, and cilantro chopped in the chopper, added black beans, frozen furleigh farm corn, a splash of olive oil, lime juice, cumin, and salt made a tasty, fresh snack enjoyed with tostitos.

tailgating2I used the tupperware insulated tumbler all day for my mixed drink.  I started off with a bloody mary ...tailgating3but switched to something a little lighter, a mojito, which I brought in the tupperware slimline pitcher.  Rum, sprigs of mint, limeade all mixed in the pitcher, and poured into a glass of ice with lime soda water.  I like mojitos because they aren't super sweet and seem refreshing and light.

tailgating5I was proud of my innovation and creativity.  I was responsible for the burgers and buns, so I packed them in my season serve container and the buns didn't get all smooshed in transport. Genius! The sky is the limit on ways to use tupperware!
