Thanks to Rubbermaid® fasten + go, bringing your meals on the go has never been easier or more convenient, no matter what life may throw your way. Today we are revamping holiday leftovers and creating a delicious on-the-go meal!
There’s an old cliché about Thanksgiving dinner, and how it’s a treat most of us indulge in but once year, if that. While many of us enjoy the leftovers, they are usually but a mere shadow of the former feast, of course. Often times, at least from my perspective, as delicious as the leftovers undeniably are, they are often more of a post-holiday tease, at least from my perspective.
However, I do not despair, for as the Chinese philosopher and poet Lao Tzu instructed us “Do the difficult things while they are easy,” and to “do the great things while they are small. A journey of a thousand miles must begin with a single step.”
And so, with that in mind, I like to create something entirely different, at least in feel and spirit with the Thanksgiving leftovers, as opposed to trying to turn them into a shadow of their former selves. I found myself thinking about precisely that during a conversation with a friend a few nights ago, and we were talking about work, and she remarked that I must “Always eat gourmet” given what I do. My reply was that “Working at home means you’re always at the office, and that means a lot of eat-to-survive office food.”
Now, I’m not sure if it was the prosecco coupled with the copious amounts of dinner party dessert, or wide-eyed holiday exhaustion, or both, but that got me to thinking about “Post-Thanksgiving-Home-Office-Lunch.”
Just hear me out.
All too often I’ve found myself eating my Thanksgiving leftovers, or any holiday leftovers for that matter, little by little, either in late night sneak-eats in ominous glow the open fridge, or heated up little by little for rushed workday lunches, and all the while never really ‘enjoying’ them the way I wanted to, and in fact knew I could. To solve that, without consciously disrupting my workday, I decided to pull a page out of my commuting days, and pack myself a lunch for work in my new set of Target Rubbermaid® fasten + go, with all of the trimmings of a Thanksgiving dinner in desk-friendly luncheon portions.
You see, all the ingredients for a delicious holiday meal are there, why not take that first ‘small step’ and begin putting them together to be enjoyed? Simple really.
What are some of the ways you keep up with the holiday flavors despite a busy schedule? Or what are some of the ways you put your leftovers to use? We would love to hear from you.
