In the footsteps of Mom
My mother always carefully saved the wrappers from a stick of butter to use greasing the baking pan. Tonight, I am baking some cookies and a pan of brownies. I carefully saved the butter wrapper from the cookie dough to use to grease the brownie pan.
My evil cat knocked the wrapper onto the floor to lick the butter remnants, so I had to throw the wrapper out. I then had to use a smigden of butter from the butter dish and a paper towel to grease the pan. I was just thinking about my mom, who has passed on, shaking her head at me.
I thought I'd share and ask -- what habits do you have that you learned at your mother's apron strings?
