I’m sharing #Freshworks in my life as part of a Rubbermaid Freshworks sponsored series for Socialstars™
Finally we are getting relief from the Winter. As soon as those temps start to rise the short pants and tee shirts come out. It may be 52 degrees outside but it feels like a heat wave and we are quick to shed our winter layer of clothes. I think it’s funny when Winter is setting in and it gets into the 50’s we bundle up and complain about how cold it is. But the opposite is true when Spring has sprung.
When you are in the throws of the snow storms and ice you dream of the greener times and being outside. We like to take walks in the park, and who can resist a good slide??? Getting outside after being cooped up all winter feels like you’re bursting forth into freedom from a long stint in a cell. After a long winter away from the world it’s nice to get outside.
One of the things we like to do is get together with friends and family and have outside picnics. It’s a way to dust off the cob webs of winter and start enjoying the presence and company of others again. Nothing is better than a potluck picnic and getting the try all the dishes people bring.
Each year I look forward to those first tender veggies popping up at the store or in my own garden. But one thing that I hate is to see my produce go bad. I have found a system in Rubbermaid® Freshworks™ that helps keep those first tender spring veggies crispier longer and lasts longer. I want my veggies to retain the nutritional value as long as possible so we can enjoy them!
So as the weather began to warm up I wanted to plan a picnic. I knew I wanted to make an Asian Zoodle salad that would highlight some of my favorite veggies and bring together with an amazing dressing that perfectly highlights each veggies and coats it in amazing flavor. But how would I store this so it would remain crisp and fresh and delish for the picnic? I immediately thought of my Rubbermaid® Freshworks™. It would the perfect vehicle to store and transport my Asian Zoodle salad.
Getting together with friends and family is what life is really all about. I love bringing fresh fruit and veggies to these picnics and I know that when I store them in Rubbermaid® Freshworks™ Containers that I can count on them to keep those first veggies fresh and crisp. Give them a try!
