Kitchen Tip Tuesday 4-7-09

Today has been a busy day around the house. I put pork chops in the crockpot to cook by 12. As soon as I finished the pork chops I went ahead and put my sweet potatoes in the oven to bake, so they would be cool enough to handle when it was time to mash them. After I mash them and put all the wonderful fattening ingredients in them, I will heat them in the oven. I am also boiling chicken leg quarters. We will remove the meat from them and freeze it in two cup batches. I really love having chicken like this on hand, as it makes it much easier when preparing meals. The girls are working on the kitchen, family room, and washing laundry. In the midst of all of the kitchen work I have been doing some planning and much needed computer work.

Tammy is talking about cookware cleaning on her site today and asked for any tips that others may have. When I have something that is baked on and seemingly impossible to clean I put the pan in the sink and fill it with warm water. I then add several tablespoons of baking soda and let it soak for a few minutes. You would be surprised at how easily the caked on food falls away. Often there is no scrubbing required. If any hard to clean places remain I will use some of the scrub I wrote about in this post. I hope that you will drop in on Tammy, as she always has so many good tips to help us with our home.
