(Sorry for the sideways.) Richard did a doubletake when he got home as he went to put his stuff down–where did those come from?

My friend Kathy came by, I told him, and she’d read the post about the spilt pea soup. Says you can put hot soup in these, the lids lock down on the top, you can transport it safely–she has–and they wash in the dishwasher, and she’d wanted to help keep our car clean the next time.

Very cool. Thank you, Kathy! I had no idea these even existed. Got room to make a triple batch with these guys.

Meantime, I particularly like this picture from the Inauguration. A husband, a wife, a mother-in-law.

(Ed. to add after reading Don’s question: it’s a package of three, each holding more than a gallon.)

Brilliant, Kathy!

I love it! Thanks, Alison and Kathy. I don’t transport soup often, but I’ve lived in fear the few times I have… much easier to purchase those awesome containers for when the need does present itself again.

Any restaurant supply house will have Cambro containers. Smart & Final too (that’s where I got these). They come in different sizes, from 1 quart, up to several gallons. We use them for storage of dry foods, large pots of stock and everything in between. Freezer/dishwasher safe! Trust me, I’ve done my share of crockpot/dutch oven spillage too.

Glad you’ll get lots of use out of these, Alison!
