when was the bread baked?

Hi! Hey when do you think your just purchased bread was baked? Here are the colors that indicate the date!

Hint: take a picture of this with your phone, so you have it at the market for reference!

This website,  The Kitchn  has a ton of interesting shortcuts as well! Enjoy! The Sisters

tags tape and paper towel holders

Hi, ever wonder what to do with those pesky plastic bread tags? Well you can use them to put at the end of the tape vs nothing and trying with fingernails to peel it back to use again!

This  beauty of a red rooster paper towel holder came from Big Lots and it houses my many colors of my apparent duct tape addiction! (I have three full holders, it's a sickness!) :)

I saw this "tag" reuse thing many years ago, but it worked so well just sharing it here.

Just think, you are recycling, reusing and if they break, they can then go into the recycle bin!

Enjoy, Kat

rubber bands

Sometimes hard to get those jar lids open? Keep all those newspaper and asparagas rubber bands, put one around the lid of a jar for traction, and off it comes!
