Works For Me Wednesday – Mess-Free Pan Greasing
“You know how it is–we all have come up with dozens of little shortcuts or ideas around our homes to make managing our lives easier. Maybe you came up with such an idea yourself in a moment of desperation, or you learned it from your mom or another friend…it doesn’t matter how it came about. What matters is that your life runs the tiniest bit more smoothly because of your clever idea…Think how much we could all learn from each other if we share our own little ideas!. IT DOESN’T HAVE TO BE EARTH-SHATTERING. Just simple, affordable and designed to make the tiniest difference in your day.”
I am not much of a homemaker (ask anyone who has been to my clean but cluttered house) and I am not crazy about cooking either, but I thought I could round up a few tricks that I have up my sleeve. At least for a couple weeks.
So, for my first participation in the Works-For-Me Wednesday, I would like to share a little tip with you that my mom shared with me when she was teaching me how to cook.
When baking, many recipes call for you to grease a pan. While you could just spray the pan, sometimes you want to use good ol’ Crisco to make sure that it is greased well. Instead of getting your hands all greasy when wiping the Crisco around the pan, use a paper towel. Wad up the paper towel and dip one end into the grease. Then, take the greased end of the paper towel and use that to wipe the grease all over your pan. Throw the paper towel away when finished, and you have a nicely greased pan and no extra mess to clean off of your hands. Thanks to my mom for the tip.
