Housekeeping Tip

So you know how sometimes there's company coming over in ten minutes and there are still dishes in the sink and the dog has just thrown up something disgusting under the table and then the phone rings so you stick the dishes in the oven just to make the kitchen look a little better and you promise yourself you will do the dishes right as soon as everyone goes home and the next day you turn on the oven without remembering ...

This is not a good thing.

Here's how to avoid it.

Take the knob off the oven dial just as you're closing the door. Works like a charm.

I'll keep that in mind. Now the question is, did you keep that in mind? Or is this a learn from experience thing?

I yearn for a dishwasher with every fibre of my being, so as to avoid the necessity of hiding dishes in the oven any longer (our front door opens straight into a view of our kitchen !!)
