The container I've been waiting to thaw finally has. Near as I can tell it is the Greek meatballs in asparagus lemon sauce that I made a while back. I'll serve it over egg noodles.

A permanent marker and some masking tape work great to take the mystery out of freezing.

I just write on the plastic containers with permanent marker. It comes off most plastic with a bit of rubbing alcohol.

I use white board markers on plastic containers. Pen will also work on Ziploc bags.

But that would take all the fun out of it...I've been waiting for 2 days to find out what Pac was thawing!

Masking tape and a marker here. Thank goodness Pac didn't have another bowl of gravy. I'm still chuckling!

Yeah, I use my Sharpies on plastic bags too. Doesn't the whiteboard marker rub off too easily?

I was wondering the same thing. I find that labels made using my Brother label maker (1) stay on, and (2) don't fade. I have containers that are labeled "STOCK". Once empty, I don't use them for anything other than stock (which I seem to make fairly often). I generally thaw the stock and then plan the soup . Forgot, a friend of mine colour-codes the meat (so uses blue for chicken, red for beef, etc.). That way she knows what kind of meat is in the container.

Not on the lids of plastic containers. They are usually textured and hold onto the ink. The disposable containers with the shiny smooth lids do tend to wipe off more easily.
