Why not save time and water by just licking the knife? I've tempted fate a few times, for only for frosting. NOTHING beats frosting in my book.
Might I say there is a big difference between the knife on the left and the one on the right. Width is particularly important. I'm here to say you should NOT lick a knife with a narrow rather bent blade. Yup ... I did it ... and now have a nice slash across my upper lip. I'm pretty sure that's because I had just sharpened it. It's hard to get a bandaid to stick to your lip!!
I'll survive I suppose. Maybe it will even help my diet, since it's uncomfortable to eat. Or maybe THIS will help!!! Ice cream trumps frosting any day. This is rather funny as a Keto dessert, since it's how I made ice cream for years, except the sweetener was sugar. This time it was Swerve.
I had the two cup mason jar, it was the lid that was elusive. Luckily, the Mason Jar company makes lots of different sized jars and only one size lid. Just for kicks, I tried it. The cocoa powder didn't mix very well with the cream upon shaking. After an hour in the freezer, I opened the lid to a "pouf" of cocoa in my face. Note to self ... shake harder and longer next time.
Better yet, leave out the cocoa and make vanilla ice cream, or maybe add a little instant coffee. The perfect activity for the next visit with the grandkids. Was it good? Heck yeah!! It's ice cream!!! Not near as sweet as the real thing, but cold and delicious when you're craving sweets.
Of course that little mason jar isn't going to last long. No problem, I've got five more in the cupboard. That's perfect since I'm sure it will take five jars before my lip heals up.
Heck you cut your lip ice cream will help. Good thing you did not cut your tongue, I have and not much helps that feel better, lol....ReplyDelete
Ha!! See, I'm not the only one!! I feel better now.Delete
Oh my. I was afraid you had cut your tongue. Enjoy the "ice cream".ReplyDelete
It was delicious!! Especially when I haven't had much in the way of sweets.Delete
Sorry about your lip. I once had a bee sting my tongue so I can relate to the pain.ReplyDelete
I finally learned that, after making sure the lid is on tightly, if I turn the jar/bottle/whatever on its side and rotate it while shaking, ingredients mix much better. At least now my salad dressings don't end up with clumps at the bottom of the bottle.
Bee sting? OUCH!!! Great tip Linda. I will be a side roller from now on!!Delete
