Works For Me: Medicine Spoons

The regular hostess of WFMW, Kristen from We Are THAT Family, is (as we speak!) en route to Kenya with Compassion International. Don’t miss her trip updates at her blog–I know she’s about to experience some powerful things.

This week and next, I’ll be temporarily hosting Works-For-Me Wednesday–let’s see if I remember how to drive this bus!

My tip is a quick one. Not too long ago, I was scrounging around for a measuring spoon. In this house, the measuring spoons all mysteriously migrate to the bathtub or the sandbox, so I couldn’t find one. Instead, I grabbed one of these dealies out of the drawer:

Thanks to the revolving door of ear infections in this family, we have just a few (dozen) of these spoons. You know what? It turns out they measure spices/oil/etc much better than traditional measuring spoons, because the overflow doesn’t come spilling over the sides, as in a spoon.

(In fact, the last time my mother-in-law was in town, she saw me doing this in my kitchen and said, “You should post that on the Wednesday thing on your blog.” So hi, Gego–this one’s for you!)

Have a WFMW tip you’d like to share? Please enter your link below (if you’re a newbie, you can read the WFMW guidelines here). Please note that this list will be closed to new links after a few days, to ward off spammers.

    Too funny! I just posted last Wednesday about doing this very thing (well, except I use the little cups instead of the long ones — those we use for meds for my son that have to be measured at exactly 4 ml). I hadn’t even thought of it as a WFMW type of tip until I told my hair dresser a few weeks ago and she said, “I never thought of that!”
    Great tip! I know that it has made my baking so much easier.

    That’s a good one! Thanks for hosting (again) WFMW. I hadn’t found the blogosphere yet when you were first “driving this bus” but I’ve really enjoyed all the tips I’ve picked up from these great ladies! Yours included!
