After cooking a pan of brownies that has 16 servings, I seem to get only 8 servings out the pan!! What's a person to do?? Now I cook my brownies in a cupcake pan - 16 brownies. So now I know that I am eating the portion size as indicated on the side of the box.
I have one cup a coffee once or twice a week so I like to make it last. The only problem is that it does get cold so fast. To keep my coffee warm longer, I pour very hot tap water into my coffee cup while my coffee is brewing. I pour out the hot water and pour in the coffee. Works like a charm!
I picked up some cheap, colorful, plastic dinner & salad plates along with matching bowls at the 99 cent only store that we use in place of paper plates. All are dishwasher safe. When guests come over for a cookout, the adults use the dinner plates & the kids use the salad plates.
My daughter got me one of the Rubbermaid Product Saver containers for Christmas. It is the BEST food container I have ever had!! It REALLY keeps my fruit and veggies fresh for longer than using a regular storage container.
I have a lot of cloth napkins I used when we had guests! What a waste! So I folded all my cloth napkins, put a pretty napkin ring on them and put them in a big basket which I placed in the middle of our dining room table.
In our family we just say, “Thanks, but that’s too rich for me!” Everyone thinks it’s a compliment about their cooking. They feel good and you don’t have to spend a lot of time explaining about your diet.
