Taco Tuesday...or Wednesday (any day is a good day), tacos are always at the top of the requested menu rotation. One of our go-to moves for taco night is using a large bamboo cutting board. See, this puppy doubles as a prep station and serving board. All of the fixin's are chopped and organized on the board and then it goes straight from the counter to the dining table. Everyone likes to make their own custom creation so this allows for family-style dining and once our bellies are full, clean up is a breeze with a quick rinse and wipe down. For under US$20, this beauty will quickly become a staple in your kitchen toolkit.
As adults, we find ourselves saying a lot of things out loud that we never thought we would..."Did you just sneeze on the cheese?!" or "Please don't lick the dog's face.". Saying that I enjoy cleaning our cast iron pans is also on that list but it's true. This little gem has saved us countless hours in scrubbing.
We use our cast iron pans 3-4 times a week for everything from fried eggs for breakfast, to cookie pies for dessert. Every single time the pans have come up nice and clean and ready for the next meal. Also works a treat on grill plates for the bbq*...no more crossing fingers that you won't find a brush bristle in your burger (ouch!).
For under US$15, this is one of those kitchen tools that will pay for itself lickity split.
*we strongly advise to only do this when the bbq is NOT on (spend your evenings relaxing out back, not in the emergency room!).
