Ziploc Summer Gift Pack giveaway


In our household we use ziploc products for a variety of things:
marinating steaks
carry wipes in my purse without having to bring the whole wipes packet
leftovers
hold snacks
party favors filled with candy for class kids
Most of these uses are not only a convenience factor but it saves me time and therefore money

Robin Miller - Chef - Nutritionist - Author

Summer is coming and my favorite is grilling out as it gets me off the hook from cooking in the kitchen and I can spend more time with the kids playing while the food is cooking on the grill.  Ziploc Brand has partnered with Food Network contributor, cookbook author, nutritionist and mom Robin Miller to help families get more out of their summer festivities, while saving time, money and resources.  Robin Miller has come up with five tips to make summer entertaining a breeze:

Marinate it - To get the juicy, grilled flavors families love, don't forget to marinate before cooking, which tenderizes meat, fish and poultry while adding great flavor.  Skip messy bowls and additional clean-up buy using Ziploc Brand Freezer bags to marinate.

Dip it - For a fun spin on outdoor entertaining, create a dipping station so guests can put their personal twist on grilled favorites.  Get creative by making several unique dips and serve them with grilled staples like fish, vegetables or meat.  Miller has a fabulous Beef Kebabs with Three Dips recipe that I'll be trying this memorial day weekend.

Prep it, Store it, Take it - Prep aheda for BBqs or block parties and make your side dishes and desserts days in advance.  Seal in freshness by storing treats in Ziploc brand containers with the smart snap seal.  Serve crowd pleasing savory options like Miller's spiral pasta with pesto, sundried tomatoes and pine nuts.

Cool It - With a little planning, the whole family can enjoy nutritious foods throughout the day while enjoying outdoor activities.  Before heading out to the campgrounds, the beach or the pack, pack your cooler with fresh treats for the family. 

Pack It - For no-fuss, budget friendly outdoor meals and snacks, try packing a picnic for the family instead of purchasing expensive theme-park meals.  Make cleaning up a cinch by storing tableware, tongs and serving spoons in Ziploc brand slider storage and Freezer bags with the smart zip seal for easy access.

If I am serving food, I make sure to have everything I can done in advance, that makes for less work.

How I make your summer entertaining easier is by looking for sales and freezing for later use. Pre-prepping party is always fun to make your entertaining for a fast clean up.

I prepare as many things as possible the day before, or morning of, the event. I clean as I go along, and after the meal I stack dishes in order of washing (handwash ALL my dishes) while visiting with guests (have a large eat-in kitchen). I put away food using Ziploc products, also use Ziploc for 'doggie bags'. I'm comfortable knowing that Ziploc brand won't let me or my guests down!

We use the ziploc's to marinade meats and for freezing foods. Also use for putting my son's snacks in when we head out to run around town.

To make my entertaining easier, I always prepare as much as possible ahead of the day of the party and use the tableware I will be serving it in. I have all other serving dishes lined up to make my set up time quicker and I usually serve buffet style to lessen the set up time. I have as many finger type foods as possible for appetizers. Along with pre-preparing my food dishes, I also line up all my accessories too, i.e. table decorations, table seasoning, dinner cloths, etc. Usually there will be requests for a recipe so I try to have some preprinted copies at the ready for any special dish that people may request. crochetmama51 at yahoo dot com
