A tip that might change your life

I listen to old podcasts of The Splendid Table on a regular basis.  Yesterday, Lynne mentioned that on the side of your box of plastic wrap and foil, there are little tabs that you can press in to secure the roll and prevent it from coming out!

Life changer.

Were you aware of this phenomenon?


  1. Yes. Do I do it? No. Why? Forgetful.

  2. Yes! Amazing, no? My Splendid Table life changer came that day after the playground when I heard that it is perfectly safe to thaw frozen meat in hot water. Apparently the shorter time hot water requires is comparable to the longer time cold water requires, so they are both equally safe when it comes to food safety. No more, "Ooops, I forgot to take the meat out of the freezer! Guess we're having cereal tonight!" moments :)
