Today we are reusing some of that garlic we peeled last week... that's the 'creative reuse' part ;-)
A few points to take note of:
1. When it comes time in the video to clean out the gadget, I say 'divots' and what I mean is 'projections', and my critic and camera man informed me that just rinsing it out right away cleans it all just fine. It is usually dry and totally crusted in there when I clean it. Clearly, he is the true, hands-on culinary genius and clean-up master in the family. I am just the "ideas guy."
2. Yes, I am stumbling over my words tonight... not for any reason other than I am tired because I was up at 3:30 this morning, which is a story for a different day.
3. And that alarming beep noise is just the phone letting us know that the battery is about to run out :P
4. I should add that yes, I do badly need a manicure or something to help my really red and dry-looking hands. They don't hurt, don't worry... they just look really bad in these videos. Must be the lighting...
Bringing in the Challenge:
Last week I had a number of readers respond positively to the idea of a Granny's Gadget Challenge. If you enjoy Granny's Gadgets and have a gadget of your own that you would like to share with us, or maybe you can't stand Granny's Gadgets and think it's easy to stand in front of the camera with some ridiculous tool and try to make it remotely entertaining, then PLEASE let me know that you'd like to participate by emailing me at: xlmic.tio (at) gmail.com.
I'm still working the idea out in my mind, but I envision maybe 3 or so participants once a month would post a video of themselves demonstrating their gadgets. We'd link up somehow and all laugh at how absurd we are. The Challenge is open to any sort of gadgets, not just kitchen ones. In fact, non-kitchen ones might even be preferred... wouldn't want anyone stealing Granny's thunder, now would we? lol
Did you spot the caboose?
