Friday Foods

Well, this is more of a product than a food. I bought some Ziploc Zip'n Steam Bags. They are so easy to use. Throw what ever you want in the bag; this week I threw broccoli, mushrooms, carrots, and potatoes in the bags at various times and yesterday I had all four in the bag at the same time. On the back of the bag, it gives recommended times to leave them in the microwave. I went with the highest time: potatoes~7 minutes. When my veggies were done they tasted great. The potatoes were done, but the carrots have remained a little hard each time I've tried them (tried them in three different bags so far, with three different varieties of veggies, but never by themselves).

I will be using these during our upcoming kitchen remodel for sure, but it is just as easy to throw veggies on the stove and almost just as quick.

Hadn't heard of these...thanks for the heads-up!

I saw these on Biggest Loser--they look like a great idea. Can they be re-used or are they just one time use?
