I'm not the greatest housekeeper. I'm not organized like some of you wonderful homemakers. I get frustrated because I can't find things I know I have. My talents and strong areas are NOT centered in the kitchen, etc.
With that understood up front, you can understand that I need all the help I can get.
I go to all of your blogs, see the beautiful, organized kitchens, no messes in the pictures as you cook --- not even flour on your aprons or on your counters!!!!! After 40 years of trying, I have come to the conclusion that God did NOT gift me in the area of neat kitchens. I CAN cook some mighty good meals, don't get me wrong!
It is the finer art of methodology that gets me every time.
But my lack of skills does not come with without complaints and laying blame on certain things. I do have one BIG beef that has eaten at me ever since my first trip to the grocery store 40 years ago.
Will someone PLEASE tell me how to open a bag of sugar without flinging about a tablespoon of it across the kitchen?????
I'm sure you all know what I'm talking about -- those paper sacks of sugar, neatly folded down several times and glued shut. You get your sugar canister or can out, open it, set it on the counter, You take your sack of sugar, and ever so carefully, begin to open it, knowing that it once again will make a failure out of you and laugh at you, "I told you so, I got you again!" No matter how carefully I try, whenever I pull up on one of those folds, sugar goes flying.
Since the 50's, so much progress has been made in packaging, sealing, presentation of products, etc. But why in the world are we still stuck with paper sacks for sugar that are glued together in such as way as to hide a bomb of sugar, waiting to explode in your kitchen?????
Please tell me how YOU open your sugar sacks!!!!!
