I mix tons of recipe doughs in bags especially cookie dough

Google Keep folks. When I realize I'm out of any item, I add it to my list on Google Keep, which is automatically shared with my husband, or anyone else I want to have access to it. So whenever either of us go to the store, we have a current list. I can even keep adding stuff as my husband is shopping, assuming he hasn't checked out yet.


I am using Keep now to take notes on this thread! I use it for everything!

My daily to do lists

Shopping lists

Reminders (you can set an alert)

Appointments

Recipes

ect.

you can put hashtags to keep things organised. I.e. when I don't know what to make for supper I check out my #recipes

or I use #packinglist and I can pull up my old packing lists instead of writing one from scratch.

Mash eggs and avocados by putting them in a mesh bag like what onions come in, and squeeze it out.

Overnight meals: I prepare meat and potatoes, barley, beans, veggies.. Etc... in aluminum foil pan the night b4. I use cheap cuts of beef.. Etc like a stew. At abt 10 pm I fill it with sauce and/or water, cover it, and bake it on 220 Fahrenheit all night. The next morning I have a yummy supper that I refrigerate, and take out when I get home from work. It works with all types of meat and bones. Chicken will dry with so much time.

I often prepare this at night, refrigerate, then cook in the oven all day so it's hot and ready when you walk in the door after work.

A bag like this. You put a peeled egg, or a peeled and pitted avocado inside, and squeeze it out through the holes.

Mix with mayo and instant guac! Or egg salad

baby wipes clean everything.

peel all vegetables for meal or shabbos prep at once and put them in water.

make faked fettucini alfredo or faked ziti.

keep the extra linen in the bedroom that its used for. Why keep it in the linen closet?

set your phone up with a setting that only allows specific calls/contacts through.

Corn or potato starch works amazing too. Just dot onto the stain, wait a couple of minutes, and brush it off. Nothing.


Dry or made wet with water?

Remove from oven. Add rice crispies and mix right in disposable pan. Done.

I wonder if the same works with chocolate and golden syrup instead with rice crispies?

Yes, I actually recently made peanut chews using a recipe from between carpools, where you put everything in a 9*13, and melt it in the oven.
Absolutely delicious!
