For grins and giggles: My quest for accurate measurement
I like to think of myself as fairly creative. The only teaspoons I have in my house are the pampered chef kind which are great for liquid or dry, but I didn't feel that it was good for cream. I found a medicine syringe with a rubber stopper that held 2 tsps also marked with ml. Perfect! however it was meant for liquid and had a narrow tube at the end. I was concerned that the cream would be too thick to fit through. I am going to give it a try. If I get too much I can squeeze it back in the tube. ( Oh the inventions I have thought up over the years, I could be on easy street if only I had pursued half of them) I was feeling quite pleased with myself. I filled it up, gave it a little push and "splat" it was all over the mirror, faucet, walls, countertop and my clean clothes sitting on the counter top. Well, so much for accuracy! Now the question is, how much did I waste? I squeezed out the rest in my hand, and then proceeded to scrape off the mirror as much as I could. I did use it. Not to be discouraged, I have cut the end off and going to try once more. Maybe I should just go buy regular teaspoons. Maybe somebody already makes a measurement syringe for cream? Maybe somebody out there has a better idea?
