Quips and Quotes
"We do not earn or merit anything by taking refuge in God. Hiding in something makes no contribution to the hiding place. All it does is show that we regard ourselves as helpless and the hiding place as a place of rescue." John Piper

Tidy Tip Tuesday - Kneading to Answer the Phone

It never seems to fail that while I am in the middle of preparing dinner (or lunch or breakfast), just about the time my hands are messy from mixing meatloaf or dredging a chili pepper in flour, kneading dough or any of a number of other messy food prep jobs, that is when the phone rings. Now that will no longer be a problem since I discovered this tidy tip:

Before you start cooking, always lay out a gallon-size plastic bag near the phone. Any empty bread bag will do or even those bags the newspaper comes in when it rains. When you need to answer the phone, just slip the bag over your hand and grab the handset. Now there will be no need to pull off plastic gloves (I use these when I have a messy prep job to do, such as mixing meatballs or meatloaf) or wash your hands, nor anymore missed calls. And best of all, no more bread dough, meatloaf, etc. to have to clean off the phone.
