My kitchen tip this week is the rubber band trick to keep lids on.
I do this when I'm taking a covered dish somewhere.
It is a simple little trick that I'm sure most people know. But at one time I didn't know it & when I learned it I was thrilled to know it! :)
Here's a picture of our green beans that were getting ready to leave for the church pitch-in.
Now when I take things, I don't have to worry about the lid rattling around or even falling off.
You take a large sized rubber band & hook it under one handle. Then make one twist in the rubber band.
Then go past the middle nob in the lid & make another twist.
And then hook it onto the other handle.
And there you go, the Rubber Band Trick!
I have to give thanks to one of my babysitting parents for this. A few years ago my husband was having a really bad time with his Multiple Sclerosis & this babsitting mom brought us some beef stew in a crock pot & it had the lid attached with a big rubber band. I stared at the pot being thankful that she'd do this for us, & then trying to figure out that rubber band! LOL
So thanks to Gracie's mom, I now know the Rubber Band Trick & I use it often. :)
