Multi-task=multi-time


Do you ever have like 5 or 6 things cooking at once and are feeling extremely uptight about the thoughts of burning something while stirring something else?
Yeah, me too! (and yes, I have burned a number of things in my kitchen lifetime!)
Well, I have found that using multiple timers help me to keep the smoke down! I have a timer on the oven, one on the microwave, and one on the fridge....SO,
I FINALLLLLLY
GOT THE BRIGHT IDEA
TO USE THEM ALL AT ONCE!
WOW!
what a breakthrough!
Yes, one timer goes on the meatloaf, one on the lima beans so I don't boil the water off and scorch them, and the third goes to the potatoes so they aren't just thick water!

that would be ALOT better than just writing down the time for each thing like what I do! LOL

I am thinking "multi" today too but talking bowls rather than timers! :)

I found a timer a couple of years ago that has 3 timers on it. It has been such a help especially to organize dinner. :D
