It’s time once again for some more preppin’ tips. Tuesday comes around pretty regular, usually every week. Hopefully you will find these tips helpful.
Preppin’ Tip # 1 – Tool Tip
With winter just around the corner, there’s a good chance you may be shoveling snow out of your drive-way soon. Make it a task that’s a little bit easier by spraying WD-40 or similar type lubricant on the blade of your shovel. This will make it a lot easier to shovel all that snow.
Preppin’ Tip # 2 – Fuel Tip
Most chainsaws use two-cycle oil mixtures. Remember to give your fuel can with the oil and gas mixture a “gentle” shake before re-filling your chainsaw’s fuel tank. Your chainsaw will thank you.
Preppin’ Tip # 3 – Winter Safety Tip
Keep a 30 to 50 foot line or rope in the vehicle. If you get stranded and have to leave your vehicle for any reason, tie one end of the rope to a door handle (or some other part of your vehicle) and the other end to yourself. If you get disoriented or blinded by heavy snowfall, you can always find your way back.
Preppin’ Tip # 4 – Food Conservation Tip
Leftover tomato sauce or tomato paste doesn’t last very long after opening (usually a day, maybe two), even after being placed in the refrigerator. Simply pour some liquid cooking oil on top of your leftover tomato sauce or paste and it will keep for a couple of weeks if refrigerated. Simply pour the cooking oil off when you are ready to use your sauce.
Preppin’ Tip # 5 – Cooking Tip
We’ve all done it at some time or another! We burned the rice because we got busy with something else. Don’t throw it away. Salvage it! Get rid of the burnt smell and taste! Place the heel from a loaf of bread on top of the rice, cover and then let it sit 8 to 10 minutes. The bread will absorb the burnt smell and allow you to use the majority of your rice. Use care when taking your salvaged rice out of the pan. Be careful not to mix the good rice on top with the burnt rice on the bottom. You will still have to discard the burnt portion at the bottom of the pan.
