    Moving on. Another one that comes handy at parties, functions, marriages where there is no scope for getting bowls to put the gravy items in.
    This is something that I do practically every time there is a buffet meal to be had.

    Take plain rice (which would obviously be served), And make small sections in your plate with that rice. Here's a paint image made by me for that. -

    So you can put your 2 main dishes in 1 and 2, a little curd in 3 and still have space for salad and your breads.

    For those not so good with washing dishes, try the following -

    Get a spray bottle and mix your liquid soap for washing utensils in about 1:10 ratio.
    Be careful when filling water and not to let it foam up too much. Set the nozzle and you are good to go.

    This saves the hassle of having to dab the liquid soap onto the scrubber and or directly into the pan/utensil. Also helps save soap/the amount of water needed to rinse extra soap.
    Adjustment of the nozzle can also allow you to spray the soap with much greater force at food particles in hard to reach places like grooves or under covers.

    I just tried it, and it bloody works!

    Another real easy one is to open a banana from the base rather than the stem. It makes it real easy, so much so that even a kid could do it.

    I learned a new one from a family member. For those washing dishes -

    Instead of using the regular sponge and tray to put the liquid soap in and then dab it onto your utensils, Get a spray bottle, mix about 5-7% liquid soap with water and you are good to go!

    Not only does it help save soap, it saves time since you can just spray the soap onto the utensil. You can also control the force with which the soap should be applied by rotating the nozzle.

    Tried it, and it works!

    I'd recommend them. Not tried the potato one though. The car range thing works.

    Found some useful ones while trolling the internet -

    1) I hate cutting Kiwis, this is very very useful! -

    2) the missus is going to get mad really soon, but this is so much easier than using ty-raps or rubber bands!

    Something that I did on my own.

    The missus found the cooking range to be a mess after cooking/preparing food on it. Cleaning it was a lot of hassle, not to mention time consuming.

    Voila and I came up with the following idea -

    Took a regular aluminum foil roll, and took it over the burner (heater in my case). and cut the circle out with a regular knife.

    IMG_1314.JPG

    Now, not only does this cover the top and keep it from getting dirty, it can be re-used for a week or more even before trashing and wiping up the minor spills. Does not burn or get affected in any way.

    Something similar can be done for burner stoves as well, maybe by increasing the distance a bit.


    Oh and another useful one I found online. Going to try this the next time I am home. Though I'm pretty sure the condensation on the packet will eventually make the beer box wet and mouldy.
