1) Best Of Helpful Hints: The Kitchen

Temperature Control Part 2: Keeping The Cold Food Cold: In Ice Chests
* If you're going camping, solid frozen foods should keep frozen for 2 to 3 days and very cold for at least one more day if they're packed snugly in the ice chest. They should keep longer if packed with no air spaced between foods.

* Use an ice bowl; put the serving bowl you'll be using, weighted down, in a bowl filled with water (no water in serving bowl). Freeze. Use the empty center bowl for serving salads or dips.
