Friday Fun ~ Cooking with a New Toy

White Rabbit: [singing] I'm late / I'm late / For a very important date. / No time to say "Hello, Goodbye". / I'm late, I'm late, I'm late. From Disney's Alice in Wonderland.

It Friday Fun at the Murphey Saga. One thing I've missed since my stroke is freshly ground pepper. The chef in me cringes at pre-ground stuff. Now, I have the McCormick's Spice grinders and pepper mills galore, but have been at a loss of how to grind it one handed. So I searched for a one handed pepper mill. I didn't want a battery operated one, but a manual one. Like you, I have a ton of stuff that runs off of batteries.  Batteries get down right expensive.

Now I could have gone with a standard looking, manual grinder, but you know me...I didn't. That just wouldn't be me or a Friday Fun. This is what I bought.
TA-DA!
It arrived today and can't wait to use it. Squeeze the ears and out of the base comes the freshly ground pepper. I also got one for salt that's white. Filling it posed a problem. You fill it at the tail. But my handy dandy funnel and a pan of rice fixed that.


I'm off to try it out. Have fun today!

A bunny pepper grinder. Now that's funny. They could use those in vegetarian restaurants. Glad you found one you could use!

That is utterly cute! What an idea!

...now about those cake pops...

Alex- Not only did I find one I could use but fun the use too.

Diana- I ran out of energy and had to take a nap. There's always tomorrow.

I love stroke survivors who don't let frustration get between them and something they want.

Rebecca, It's all about doing what you loved doing and doing it again.

Me too. For someone who has been abby normal all her life...why go ordinary?
