In our household we use ziploc products for a variety of things:
marinating steakscarry wipes in my purse without having to bring the whole wipes packetleftovershold snacksparty 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
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.
