This week's tip is brought to you by Yellow Pages. Well, not really. They don't know I'm doing this, and they'd probably be all kinds of pissed for what I'm about to share with you.
When I have something I need "blotted" like bacon or kale chips, I tear out a few pages of the phone book and put the food item on top of that stack. We used to use paper towels, but phone books are free and work just as well.
Sorry Yellow Pages. Don't hate me. Let's face it, your days are numbered. Ever heard of a little thing called Google? If you need to talk to my lawyer about this tip, please call 867-5309 and ask for Jenny.
