And it make the ink dissolve, even though it's supposed to be permanent.

I found that the marking on a plastic lid scrubs right off.

If you can't see the bright side of life, polish the dull side.

Jacky, sometimes it has to do with how you were raised. Mom bought a huge chest freezer in the early sixties at a Monkey Wards scratch & dent sale, and freezing became a way of life. I learned to cook for 6 and somehow never really got out of the habit for stuff like chili, red sauce, stews, soups (even though I never had children). I no longer have a separate freezer, but mine is still always full of leftovers, and I make stuff like the above and stocks from scratch. A meal for us might mean up to 2 or 3 more meals in the future. I also have two elderly shut-in friends who I bring the ocaisional meal to. Periodically, though, something falls to the back or gets mis-labeled and I wonder, what in the X&&^%$$ us this? Thaw and announce to husband we're having a mystery meal. Once in awhile I do throw it out, but usually it is something I can transform!

My black great dane Cereberus just loves mystery meals! If I don't like something, he usually adores it!
The luster of shiny new appliances can't compete with the virtues of Vintage: namely durability, simplicity, superior cooking and a cool retro look. http://leoladyshousecollectiblesandg....blogspot.com/

I for sure have done it. i am trying to be better about labeling, but far from perfect.

You are what you eat.
