What happens. Events that appeal to me. Foods I enjoy. Crafty efforts.

Sunday, lovely Sunday.
I am enjoying Sunday. The seasons are changing and the air is quite dry and fresh. Soon the sun will come up. It is lovely and quiet.
I found this in a newsletter some time back. One comment is advice from a kitchen diva. It is followed by a rebuttal from a housewife. You might be like me and hoard such stuff in a computer file for dull days.
Kitchen Wisdom Stuff a miniature marshmallow in the bottom of an ice cream cone
to prevent ice cream drips. Just suck the ice cream out of the bottom of the cone, for Pete's
sake! You are probably lying on the couch with your feet up eating it anyway!
To keep potatoes from budding, place an apple in the bag with the
potatoes. Buy Deb mashed potato flakes. Keeps in the pantry for
up to a year. Even an opened packet keeps well in the fridge.
When a cake recipe calls for flouring the baking pan, use a bit of
the dry cake mix instead and there won't be any white mess on the outside of
the cake. Go to the bakery! Hell, they'll even decorate it for you!
If you accidentally over-salt a dish while it's
still cooking, drop in a peeled potato and it will absorb the excess salt for
an instant 'fix-me-up.' If you over-salt a dish while you are cooking, that's too bad.
Please recite with me the real woman's motto: 'I made it, you will eat it
and I don't care how bad it tastes!'
Wrap celery in aluminum foil when putting in the refrigerator and
it will keep for weeks. Celery? Never heard of it!
Brush some beaten egg white over pie crust before baking to yield
a beautiful glossy finish. The McCains frozen pie directions do not include brushing egg
whites over the crust, so I don't.
Cure for headaches: take a lime, cut it in half and rub it
on your forehead. The throbbing will go away. Take a lime, mix it with tequila, chill and drink! All your
pains go away!
If you have a problem opening jars, try using latex dish washing
gloves. They give a non-slip grip that makes opening jars easy. Go ask that very cute neighbor if he can open it for you.
Don't throw out all that leftover wine. Freeze into ice
cubes for future use in casseroles and sauces. Leftover wine??????????? HELLO!!!!!!!
