Tuesday Tip: Lots of Lime Juice (or lemon...)
My husband never ceases to amaze me. Sometimes I wonder how he would get by in life if I wasn't doing things to keep this house going (watering plants, taking out the garbage, buying paper towels and cleaning supplies - just to name a few). And then, he'll just come out with this tip that is so "DUH!" but so helpful.
My favorite one still is when he taught me that if you put a wooden spoon over a pot of boiling water, it won't boil over. I blogged about that here.
Then the other night we were making pork tacos and they marinade for the pork takes about a zillion limes. I rolled the lime a few times under my hand to try to extract the juices and I could hardly get any juice out despite my little trick. I told my husband he was going to have to roll the limes around because I clearly wasn't pressing had enough.
And that's when he said, "Don't you know? Just pop it in the microwave for 10-15 seconds." And dang if that didn't work like a miracle - the juice came pouring out of that babies after that!
