I scare myself sometimes with the genius little ideas my brain comes up with.
I hate the mess that ordinarily goes with handling pancake batter so I decided to try pouring my batter into an old, well-cleaned and dried ketchup (Catsup) bottle and pushing on the sides of the bottle to expel the batter into the skillet on top of the stove.
Voilà! Neatness achieved. Neatness in the pouring, neatness in controlling the placement of the batter in the skillet, easiness on gauging the size of each individual pancake …
Wish I had thought of this one a long time ago.
Now on another note …. have you ever struggled to locate your automobile in a crowded parking lot at a mall or somewhere?
I have taken to tying a piece of wide, highly-visible brightly-colored ribbon to the antenna of my auto. It is very helpful in allowing me to spot our car across a large lot.
Just thought you might want to know.
