The last few weeks have been busy — to say the least. I don’t just mean ‘regular busy,’ the kind people say they are when everything’s just normal.

This was what I call ‘ultra busy,’ I’ve been juggling the end of a big project, moving to a new place and starting a new full-time job.

Yeah, this woman is ready for a weekend!

Busy weeks like this mean that it can be a struggle to get dinner on the table. It’s easy for me to want to pick up take-out, but I’d rather cook if I can make the time. Plus it helps me wind down.

I always opt for quick meals, maybe a slow cooker dinner or something I can throw together in less than 3o minutes. Even reheating leftovers or turning them into something new.

Good storage containers are hard to come by, but they do make a huge difference. I recently tried out the new Rubbermaid® Brilliance™ premium storage containers to store leftover cooked pasta and meatballs.

One of our favorites for a busy night is cooking up a big pot of pasta and meatballs that will last for a few meals. Add to the leftovers a little chicken broth and give them some more time on the stove, and we’ve got a totally new dish: Spaghetti and Chicken Meatballs Soup. I stored the rest in the fridge for one more meal.

Rubbermaid® Brilliance™ is a new innovation at Walmart. Launched in October 2016, these storage containers make an excellent addition to the kitchen.

I love that they are 100% leak-proof guaranteed, microwave safe and splatter-proof! Plus, they stack! Anything that saves space in my fridge is automatically my favorite.

I also love that these storage containers are stain resistant! When I cook pasta, I often turn to Bertolli® Sauces like the Tomato/Basil or the Creamy Basil Alfredo, and the tomatoes won’t stain these containers! Amazing.

By the way, these sauces are a staple in my kitchen. I make sure to have one on hand in case I’m in the mood for pasta. (Bonus: The tomato basil sauce always reminds me of a vacation I took to Tuscany with my family.)
