I know I know, it's hard to follow up our last post with anything that is even mildly exciting, but I'm going to give it a shot. Baking soda and chicken curry is exciting, right?
|1 portion in my belly|
1 portion for lunch tomorrow
2 portions for the freezer for a later time
That was my first kitchen trick. The other was sort of an unplanned trick.
While I was barbarically eating the curry, I spilled it all over my kitchen table. For some reason, the yellow curry stained my table pretty bad that a sponge would even touch it. Here is the evidence:

I resorted to my baking soda trick and went to town. First, I made a my baking soda paste (baking soda + a few drops of water)

I dabbed it on to all affected areas
I let it sit for a few minutes to soak up the stain
Put some elbow grease into it
And that did it, sort of. The stains didn't come out completely, but I'm not too worried about it. This is a table that I painted, stained, antiquified, and sealed about 5 years ago, so it's about time it gains some character!
So those are a couple kitchen tricks for this Tuesday morning: how to make your take-out last, and how to clean up after yourself if you eat like a pregnant hormonal slob (like me!).
