06/29/20 Grif.Net – Household Tips for Quarantine (part 1)

[Read a =
magazine article on methods Martha Stewart has for help around the =
house.  My ways seem to work just as well as the professional =
advice. You be the judge.]

 

MARTHA’S =
WAY #1: Stuff a miniature marshmallow in the bottom of a sugar cone to =
prevent ice cream drips.

MY WAY: 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.

 

MARTHA’S =
WAY #2: Use a meat baster to "squeeze" your pancake batter =
onto the hot griddle and you’ll get perfectly shaped pancakes every =
time.

MY WAY: Buy =
the precooked kind you nuke in the microwave for 30 seconds. The hardest =
part is getting them out of the plastic bag.

 

MARTHA’S =
WAY #3: To keep potatoes from budding, place an apple in the bag =
with the potatoes.

MY WAY: Buy =
Hungry Jack mashed potato mix and keep it in the pantry for up to a =
year.

 

MARTHA’S =
WAY #4: To prevent egg shells from cracking, add a pinch  of =
salt to the water before hard boiling.

MY WAY: Who =
cares if they crack, aren’t you going to take the shells off =
anyway?

 

MARTHA’S =
WAY #5: To get the most juice out of fresh lemons, bring them to room =
temperature and roll them under your palm against the kitchen counter =
before squeezing.

MY WAY: Sleep =
with the lemons in between the mattress and box =
springs.

 

[but wait, =
there’s more . . . all this week]
