Genius finds at Target!

Ok, I don't like to cook. There, I've said it. I hate the mess, I hate the time, I hate that after an amazing 2 hours in the kitchen, I will have another hour of clean up. So I try to use as many short cuts as I can; pre washed lettuce, frozen veggies, etc...

Well folks, I have found a product that makes me totally ok with cooking veggies. Glad Steaming bags are all that they say - easy, clean, and perfectly steam veggies in a matter of minutes in the microwave.

I know, I know. I could just use the veggie steamer and the stove. But then I have dishes to clean and the distinct possibility of overcooking. (Not that DH would mind. He's English and loves everything burnt a/o overcooked to the point of mush. See why we're the perfect couple?)

All you do is wash fresh veggies, pop them in the handy stand-up ziploc bag, seal it, and toss it in the microwave for the time printed on the bag. Pull it out and voila! Perfect veggies, every time.

I take my lunch to work every day and I know that bags of veggies will now be coming with me. Give it a try - I got a box of 10 for $2 at Target.

PS - I tried Broccoflower (lime green cross between broccoli and cauliflower) from Trader Joe's and it was *awesome* steamed with salt, pepper, and half a lemon. Give it a go!

I love to use these steamer bags too! They are so easy and I like the fact that I can cook vegetables without using any fat.
