Did you know?

Here are some random pearls if wisdom I thought you might enjoy.
So...
Enjoy!
************************************
1. Peel a banana from the bottom and you won't have to pick the little 'stringy things' off of it. That's how the primates do it.
*****************
2. Take your bananas apart when you get home from the store.
If you leave them connected at the stem, they ripen faster.
*****************
3. Store your opened chunks of cheese in aluminum foil.
It will stay fresh much longer and not mold!
*****************
4. Peppers with 3 bumps on the bottom are sweeter and better for eating.
Peppers with 4 bumps on the bottom are firmer and better for cooking.
******************
5. Add a teaspoon of water when frying ground beef.
It will help pull the grease away from the meat while cooking.
******************
6. To really make scrambled eggs or omelets rich add a couple ofspoonfuls of sour cream,
cream cheese, or heavy cream in and then beat them up.
*******************
7. Add garlic immediately to a recipe if you want a light taste of garlic and at the end of the recipe if your want a stronger taste of garlic.
*******************
8. Tired of mushy Red Apples? Only buy apples that have "stripes" at the stem end of the apple and it is guaranteed to be crisp and white inside.
********************
9. Wake up wilted lettuce by filling bowl with cold, iced water and let the lettuce sit in it for a few minutes. The lettuce will crisp right up.
********************
10. Tape frequently used recipes to the inside of your kitchen cupboards. They are always accessible and will stay clean.
*********************
11. When using a microfiber cloth to dust, be careful not to use a dryer sheet or fabric softener when drying it, or it will lose it's magnetic ability.
*********************
12. Never store tomatoes in the refrigerator, and NEVER buy them from a refrigerated case at the store. They are void of all flavor after being cold.
********************
Hope this was helpful!
