Simple awesomeness

Sometimes the obvious answer is right under my nose, and it feels so good to finally find it.

What's the best container to put ice in so that it doesn't get my cooler all wet when it melts?

Oh, how about... an ice bucket?

So obvious. So simple. $25 at Smart & Final. A stainless steel ice bucket, the kind that is used for chilling bottles of champagne. After a year, I finally realized that is the thing to buy.

It's the perfect size for a block of ice, if I get a hammer and bang about a half-inch off of the corners of the ice block. Fits right in, and close the top of the cooler. Cold food and a dry cooler.
