OK, there are those who will read the title of this post and think, “Well, she’s finally gone over the edge.” And there are those of you who will read the title and think, “Bra, did someone say bra?” (These will probably be the guys and just mentioning the word ‘bra’ means I’ve lost their attention). And there will be those of you who think, “No way! There’s no such thing as a comfortable bra!”
Well – I don’t think I’ve gone over the edge YET and those of you whose attention I’ve lost are best left to their private thoughts and I would have agreed with you about there being no such thing as a comfortable bra until I found this one!
In the last week I’ve had to transport food a few times and I have relied on this bra for assistance. Stay with me here…..I promise I haven’t lost it and I will make a connection.
I’ll use this as a shameless opportunity to remind you that I recently became a great-aunt to THE CUTEST BABY IN THE UNIVERSE. And as a result I’ve made a discovery…..if I bring food to the new parents, I get uninterrupted baby time!!! It’s a great discovery. Most assuredly not a new discovery; but one on which I fully intend to capitalize!!!
The Cutest Baby in the Universe
I also had the pleasure on Sunday of hanging out with friends (some long-time friends and some new friends – and I’m blessed by all) in the woods. We met at our friends’ “cabin” and everyone brought a dish to contribute to the feast. We had a great time eating and talking and hiking in a beautiful setting provided by gracious hosts.
For all the food transport I did, I put into action a great little tool – the PotBra. It’s such a simple device that you’ll kick yourself for not thinking of it. The PotBra is a silicone band designed to “keep your lid on tight!” And it delivers on that promise.
I used it to transport chicken soup in a Le Creuset French oven. Because the PotBra does not create a seal on the vessel, I covered it with plastic wrap before placing the lid on top. I easily secured the PotBra to the lid and the handles of the French oven. I put the pot on the floor of my car and drove about 20 minutes (some over hill & dale and some on the highway) to my destination. I did not lose even one drop!!!
I also transported a Baked Potato and Bacon casserole in my small Nesco Roaster. This time, because (1) I had already seen the PotBra in action, (2) I was transporting something thicker than soup and (3) the interior roasting pan was hot, I did not cover the roaster with plastic wrap. I simply put the lid on and secured the Pot Bra to the lid and handles of the roaster. Again, I had no spills or messes in the car!!!
I would highly recommend this product for several reasons:
- It’s compact and easy to store.
- It is silicone and therefore can withstand heat and is easy to clean.
- It delivers on its promise.
- It’s made in the U.S. – in Texas.
- It stretches to fit many sizes and shapes of cooking vessel.
- It is truly the most comfortable bra I’ve ever owned!
