Fixing a spot of lunch as I do betimes, I decided on coldcuts, pickles and chips. Since I had made roast beef last time, I decided to open a new packet of luncheon meat which Beautiful likes much more than I do. Anyway, this vacuum-sealed pack had teeny-tiny white printing on a corner of the back of the packet which said, "Peel Here." As you can see in the picture above, I did get the rackin' flippin' corkin' snockin' layers separated. Then I tried to "peel.' I finally, by grasping one side with a dishcloth to reduce slippage, managed to peel back a couple of inches. But no farther. Considered getting a couple pair of pliers-- stupid. Got the scissors and proceeded to open the packet. I stored what I didn't use in GladWrap. Thank you, Fiskars; no thanks to Eckrich.
And what is with the "Resealable" packages we are doubtless paying extra for these days? Have we all run out of spring-loaded clothes pins? This idea is actually rather clever, I discovered after destroying a couple of them trying to open the sack. The problem is that it is a "run your finger down the strip" closure, the which I am almost never able to work, or if I do, I leave the teeniest space open. Stale chips. Yecccch!
