This very well could go down as the lamest WFMW post ever, but at lot of my brilliant ideas would best be served with a picture and I am too lazy to go find the camera and my props. This is some serious lazy. So I have sat here racking my brain for a tip that requires no photos yet is still somewhat interesting. I apologize that this is what I came up with. Please don’t hold it against as reflective of my blog. Sometimes I am actually interesting and witty. I promise…
Anywho, here is my lame tip. Often when I am cooking I will have some sort of dirty utensil I am stirring or flipping things with. I know they sell things that you rest them on. I used to own one and it was just one more thing that was constantly dirty and needed cleaning. So it went into the garage sale pile. So, I began to rest them on the counter which required just a quick wipe up after cooking. Then one day a light went on and I came up with a better solution. Are you on the edge of your seat? If so, you might want to consider getting out more, but that is neither here nor there.
I use trash to rest it on. Not gross raw chicken wrapper type trash, but trash none the less. Like if I am making rice, I use the rice box. Fresh veggies- the bag they were in. Something that didn’t come in a container- the magazine I was about to recycle. Since it is already going in the trash, who cares if it gets a little dirty, and it is just one less thing to clean up (yes, I know I have to throw away the trash, but I was doing that anyway). All you “green” people should be majorly impressed. Seriously Al Gore should watch his back.
