So, let's say you're a dummy and leave a container of sour cream at the very back of the fridge on the top shelf, and it freezes. So you move it to the front to thaw, and 24 hours later it's pretty watery.
And, let's say the kids are coming to visit, so you order half a case of bananas from your restaurant supply house. Hey, the case is 40 pounds, so that's only 20 pounds of bananas. Easy peasy, right?
So, you decide to make banana bread, using the watery sour cream in lieu of liquids and fats. I won't even bother trying to remember the recipe, because I hope none of you are dumb enough to freeze your sour cream. But it largely disappeared.
And since my son in law was running an Iron Man Triathlon that Sunday, not too far from here, he was very appreciative of the fact that I'd made him some "excellent" carbs for "carb-loading".
And, what if your daughter had called to get the recipe for The Best Pie Crust Ever, and said son in law made a strawberry rhubarb pie to bring up for the family?
Well, then you'd just have to whip up some cream to go with it, and tell your daughter she's one lucky lady, having a husband who is quite competent in the kitchen!
Happy Tuesday, everyone!
