My brother sent me this video. It could get annoying afterwhile, but think how helpful a dog who picks up after themselves and you would be.
Also, I just love Mark Bittman. Can't help it. This article on saving time in the kitchen and avoiding headaches is pretty good. Though, I am a fan on mise en place. It saves me time for sure. In fact, before I'd read this article I was thinking mise en place would have been a good name for this blog.
And yay, I just bought an immersion blender!
