Quick, Simple, and Easy: Mason Jar Meals
In the past, most people took their meals to work or to school in brown paper bags or in lunch boxes. Recently, however, more and more people are turning to a different kind of container for their meals—Mason jars! These jars are made of thick glass. They also have a special lid that seals completely, which makes the jars perfect for storing and transporting food.
Mason jar meals have become popular because they are so easy to make. All you have to do is layer the ingredients on top of each other in the jar. For a salad, you start by pouring the salad dressing into the bottom of the jar. Then, you put in the other ingredients, such as corn, tomatoes, or mushrooms, and finish with the lettuce on top. This way, your lettuce won’t get wet and soft from the dressing. When you’re ready to eat your salad, simply mix the ingredients in the jar and enjoy!
Mason jars are also great for cereal, oatmeal, and various other foods. It’s no wonder, then, that meals in Mason jars have become a favorite among busy people.
