I can close the bread bag like nobody's business but for some reason those freezer bags confuse me.
Yes, I know that I can buy a zipper-like lock bag but that's more expensive and besides, am I really going to let a freezer bag beat me?
Not a chance. But would it be asking to much to not have to have food in the bag when I'm trying to seal it? It would make my life so much easier that way.
Somewhere out there a freezer bag is saying "You're not the boss of me!!!!!!"
Sometimes you're supposed to match up the colors when you seal and
they are supposed to make a third color or something like that. Except
maybe I don't want a third color.
Maybe I like having just two colors and a third color would be overkill and clash with the other two and not go with the whole decorating scheme inside my freezer. Did anyone ever think of that? Noooooooo.
So I match up those two teethy-like things and start the process but somehow I push down with my palm too hard to try and get all the air out and wind up crushing whatever I'm trying to "save."
So then I back off and try to go easy but then I don't get all the air out. I have just GOT to get all the air out of those bags. It's my lifetime goal.
My hubby has actually tried to show me several times how to get all the air out without killing anything. He considers it his mission in life.
It starts out with a sweet "Here honey, let me show you how to do that," and ends up with snickering and "Seriously? How can you NOT get this?"
I don't know.
It's a gift.
I can't tell you the number of cookies that have given their lives in the name of peace so that I can get that bag sealed.
What a crummy way to go.
