Good Morning Campers!
Welcome to another sunny day here on Planet Earth!
Here’s your tips for this week…
TT: I don’t make pancakes very often, but when I do, I want them right then and there. If I’m going to make them, I’m not going to eat them later! If I do have leftovers, then I would wrap them and reheat them as noted.
π Got garlic breath? Then try these tips and see which one works for you: eat some fresh parsley, chew a coffee bean or eat a bowl of lemon sorbet.
TT: As we both eat a good bit of garlic in this house, I see no need to worry about offending each other. However, if you’re the only one eating it, then this is a good idea!
TT: When we buy fresh meat, it gets re-wrapped in portioned sizes and frozen for later use, whether that be 5 days or 5 weeks. It saves having to waste it by throwing it out because it was forgotten in the fridge. Leftovers are usually taken for lunch the next day by Chef P and if there’s still more, I’ll eat it for lunch here at home. Any remaining cooked meat, such as from a roast, is put into the freezer to use later in stews.
π Romantic meals should be simple, to avoid spending too long in the kitchen. Asparagus is an aphrodisiac so makes a good starter. A pie can be made in advance. Chocolate desserts are the ultimate end to a romantic meal.
TT: Don’t want to spend too long in the kitchen? Here’s a better tip…Pick a nice restaurant and go out to eat! 😉
π Put clingfilm/plastic wrap over the top of the food processor before using. It keeps the lid clean, saving washing it and also saves space in the dishwasher if you use one of those.
TT: Haven’t tried this yet, but really like this tip. Will definitely try it next time I use my food processor.
π Massage copper-bottomed pans with ketchup to dissolve the tarnish. For stubborn stains, add a pinch of salt while you rub.
TT: I don’t have any copper-bottomed pans, but my mom does and I remember cleaning them with lemon juice and salt. I would cut the lemon in half, sprinkle with the salt and scrub the pan using the lemon half.
Have a lovely day!
