How to Use an Egg Slicer to Efficiently Slice Mushrooms

12-egg-slice-mushroom

My family likes to shop at Trader Joe’s. We also like to buy organic whenever feasible. For whatever reason, our Trader Joe’s never carries pre-sliced organic mushrooms. So, it’s either buy conventionally-grown with no prep time, or buy organic and spend an eternity slicing mushrooms by hand. Then, one day it dawned on me that our old egg slicer might do a brisk job of slicing the ‘shrooms. Sure enough, the egg slicer made quick work of the mushroom slicing, and it made for much more consistent slices than the old-fashioned way by hand.

Medicine Bottle Hidden Key Safe

It’s easy to get locked out. And, sometimes, it’s nice to have a hidden key you can direct guests to when you’re not around. Epoxy a rock to the bottom of a Medicine bottle or small jar. Avoid metal lids as they tend to corrode over time. Once the epoxy is dry, simply bury the jar with a spare house key for emergencies. Just don’t let anyone spy on you while you’re hiding this home hack!
