AFTER ALL THESE YEARS: A MINI GIVEAWAY
Let me begin by telling you that I am 59 years old and I have been cooking seriously for the last 40 years. I guess you could say I know my way around the kitchen. You COULD say that, but in this instance you would be wrong. I discovered something today via an email that I simply cannot believe I never noticed or heard about.
As I was reading the email, I had to go into the kitchen and check it out for myself. Now, I'm not trying to make excuses, but would ever look at the end of an aluminum foil or plastic wrap box? Not me.
You know when you try to pull some foil out and the roll comes out of the box? My box below had to be taped together because it finally broke from having the roll fall out so often. What I'm going to share with you may not cure the common cold, but it is startling, nevertheless. At the end of the box it says, "Press here to lock end." Okay, did you just run to the kitchen to check your own boxes? As you can see, my foil is not the nationally-known brand and it still has this message. How long has this little locking tab been there? My box of plastix wrap has one, too! I can't count the number of times the plastic wrap roll has jumped out when I was trying to cover something up.
Am I the only one who didn't know this? I'd love to hear from those of you who visit The Food of Love. Please leave me a comment before midnight EST this Friday, January 9, 2009 about this startling discovery of mine. I will randomly select a winner, who will receive this trio of "little black books."
