It’s fall and that means lots of wonderful things around here – changing leaves, wonderfully cool weather, and football!
My husband went to a college here in North Carolina that has a huge football following. Anytime there is a home game, no matter the day or the time, there will be an insane number of tailgaters. He started taking me to some of the games when we first started dating, and I quickly got caught up in the fun. I went to a small, private schools in high school and college, so I had no idea how much fun I was missing!
We took a break from tailgating and football games for a few years when the kids were too young, but now that they’re getting a little older, they enjoy the fun too. We usually spend a day cooking and getting ready the day before the game. Since we always end up taking so much food, I’ve become somewhat of an expert in packing food up for travel. I’ll admit that I tried many times to make flimsy and disposable containers work. I thought that they’d be better in case I ever lost one or left one behind.
But I never lost one or left one behind. Instead, I was stuck with containers that popped apart or crushed easily, letting the food pour out. Never again. Now I use Rubbermaid® containers.
I have a set of Rubbermaid® Easy Find Lids™ containers that I use at home all the time that have turned out to be perfect for tailgating. The lids snap on and stay on, creating a seal that doesn’t let anything spill out. And since the lids fit several container sizes each, it’s easy to find a lid whenever I need one.
Rubbermaid® Party Platter is another favorite – perfect for parties, game day at home, and for tailgating with the family. I can add chips and salsa, fruit and cream dip or potato chips and dip and everything stays put. The center dip area even comes with a separate container with a leak-proof Twist & Seal™ so I don’t have to worry about the dip spilling. Love it!
If you’ve been looking for the perfect tailgating system for your food – be sure to check out the Rubbermaid® Easy Find Lids™ containers and Party Platter. They’re all 100% BPA free, and microwave, dishwasher and freezer safe.
You’ll love them!
