Works-For-Me Wednesday is a blog carnival where you can find all sorts of hints and tips. It was started by a blogger named Shannon over at Rocks in My Dryer who is a stay at home mom of four.

No, we do not regularily stock half a gallon of heavy whipping cream around here, this photo was taken after Thanksgiving!
Once the cubes are frozen, I pop them out of the tray and store them in sandwich bags, which are then all stored in a labeled gallon size freezer Ziplock in the freezer.
