Today, I am going to share about easy meal preparations and food storage with Rubbermaid BRILLIANCE products. I received a box of Rubbermaid BRILLIANCE  products a while ago and I have been using the set every day for meal preparation and food storage! These Rubbermaid BRILLIANCE  Food storage boxes are intelligently crafted and have a nice design, and check the two biggest boxes that I look for in a storage product: they are guaranteed not to leak and are BPA free!  I used these boxes to marinate my Shrimp and also stored my washed and pre-cut asparagus (which I could then cool after I picked up my kids from school).  After dinner I also used one of the boxes to store some leftover Shrimp Scampi Asparagus Pasta for my hubby to bring for lunch next day.  I asked my husband to take note on how the container performed.  Just to give you some background, we’ve tried many containers out for his lunches over the years and have a few horror story experiences, like the time his laptop was drenched in marinara sauce.  We’ve learned that competitors can try to mimic what Rubbermaid is doing, but there really is no substitute for quality.  On that note he said he was impressed, and liked how secure the lid felt when popping it on (there’s no gray area and feeling that it might fall off any minute as there is with other containers).  These containers are stackable to keep my pantry and fridge nice and organized, and they are safe in the microwave, fridge or freezer.

Garlic Butter Shrimp Scampi Pasta Recipes Asparagus


Try this Garlic Butter Shrimp Scampi recipe, you can omit the red pepper if you are going to serve this for kids. If you can’t find dry white wine in your pantry or kitchen, just use a simple chicken broth instead.  If you want to get more of a garlicky butter sauce result, simply use more garlic!  I personally like to purchase shrimp with the shells on, then use the shells as a wonderful flavor enhancer. You can simply put shells in a saucepan with one and half cup of white wine, simmer until the liquid reduced by half, then simply add the white wine broth to a skillet for more sauce.

    My favorite food prep hack is chopping the vegetables the night before and storing them well in the fridge. So they are ready to go the next day.

    My meal prep starts with a dinner list that I make on Sunday for the week. We shop on Monday and I like to get it all in one trip. Sometimes we’ll have to swing my the marked mid week for fresh ingredients, but for the most part the vegetables we buy at the beginning of the week last until the end. Normally, I’ll prepare some of the ingredients for the week on Monday and we always plan to incorporate leftovers into future meals…although it doesn’t happen often. I’ve got portion size down to a science!
