This discovery may not change your life.
This discovery may not rock the science world.
This discovery won’t give us world peace.
This discovery may not even interest you,
But this discovery may change my life.
This discovery may rock my science projects world.
This discovery may give me peace,
And this discovery FACINATES me.
Mason jars. I love them. The end.
I grew up on a farm where Mason jars were a part of my life. We used them for canning, but we also used them to bring drinks to “the men in the fields.” During planting and harvest, my mom would pack a hot meal, and take it to my dad who was working in the field. My mom did this because she loved my dad, but also because it is rather slow to drive a tractor home for lunch. If my mom had to be gone over the dinner hour, she would pack my dad a sack lunch, but most of the time she would take him his meal in the field.
We grew up eating picnics at the edge of fields during the two most gorgeous seasons of the year–spring and autumn. And packed in each picnic basket were two large Mason Jars that my mom left with my dad. One was filled with ice water and the other with lemon-aid or iced tea.
So Mason Jars are a part of my best childhood memories.
But did you see the new lid that Mason Jar is sporting?
This new lid gives the Mason jar endless possibilities as it is a flip top!
One side opens for pouring.
I can see myself storing dried beans in this Mason jar in my pantry. About five different kinds. They would all be labeled and make my pantry look organized.
Or, I could use them for art supplies. Maybe for beads or even crayons to go.
Or for hard candy. Or soft candy. Or for chocolate.
I could store nuts or chocolate chips or grated coconut flakes.
A million possibilities!
The other side flips up, and you can use it for sprinkling.
Art = glitter or sequins or small beads.
Science = bird seed, potting soil, fertilizer,
Pantry = powdered sugar, sprinkles, raw sugar, that vanilla sugar I have plans to make,
A million storage options.
And do you know the best part?
You can buy this lid at your local grocery store. It is found in the cheese aisle right on top of the parmesan cheese container.
Now I would like 20, does anybody have some recipes that require great amounts of parmesan cheese?
And since you saw a blue plate in some of the photos, let me just share a picture of the Lemon Cake that was on the blue plate. It was wonderful. I plan on making it the next time I have a ham dinner–with asparagus and new potatoes. I might even frost it instead drizzling on the lemon glaze. Either way, it “tastes like more.”
yum, yum (which is Rebecca for “very delicious.”)
