I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Influence Central for Rubbermaid. I received product samples to facilitate my review as well as a promotional item to thank me for my participation.

Fall is here, and that means it’s time for football and tailgating!  While my family loves to watch the games, I love all the great food – pizza, wings, burgers, dips…the list goes on and on!  Tailgate food is so great, isn’t it?  It’s fun, flavorful, and can usually be eaten with just your fingers.  I love it!

Often times, I will travel an hour away to my parents’ house to watch the game with them, and I will pack up a bunch of yummy tailgating food to take with me.  Since it’s such a long drive to my parents’ house, I always make sure I pack up my food in Rubbermaid® food storage containers.  They ensure that my food will not spill in my car or in my cooler, and that everything will stay nice and fresh on the long drive up.

One of my favorite things to bring is burgers.  I make my burgers in advance, as well as chop up all of the toppings my family loves to pile on top of them – lettuce, tomatoes, onions, cheese, and peppers.  I wrap the burgers in waxed paper so they don’t stick together, and then place them inside a Rubbermaid food storage container.  I then fill more Rubbermaid® storage containers with all of our toppings, and stack them up in the cooler for super easy transport.

When I get to my parents’ house, all that’s left to do is throw the burgers on the grill.  I love having everything all ready to go when I get there, so I can spend more time with my family, instead of working away in the kitchen.  There’s nothing worse than being at a party and spending all of your time chopping up vegetables!

Rubbermaid Easy Find Lids

These Rubbermaid® Consumer Products’ Easy Find Lids™ containers are really so wonderful.  They make kitchen and pantry organization super simple by helping to keep containers and their matching lids together. The lids can together and/or snap to the bottom of matching containers, ensuring the right lid is easy to find.  The square containers come in graduated sizes that nest together to take up less room in a cupboard, fridge or pantry, too!  I also love that they are 100% BPA free, and microwave, dishwasher and freezer safe.

I am also totally in love with this awesome party platter from Rubbermaid®

It has a large divided base that keeps different types of food separated, plus a smaller leak-proof Twist & Seal™ inner container holds dip and nests snuggly in the base.

My family loves salt and vinegar chips, so I decided to try making a salt and vinegar dip.  I think it came out pretty fantastic, and it’s great served with pretzels, crackers and potato chips!
