Works for me Wednesday




My tip for this week is for a quick cleanup of the inside of your microwave. I take a microwavable bowl and fill it half way with water. I sprinkle about 1 tablespoon of cinnamon (or another good smelling spice) in the water and stir it. I then microwave it till the water is boiling and let it boil for about 2 minutes. When I take it out the inside of the microwave is steamed up and is easily wiped down. The other benefit is that your kitchen smells like you have been baking!

That's a really great idea! I'm trying it tonight after dinner, for sure. Next week you'll need to write "WFMW: How to Satisfy The Craving for Cinnabons You Get Everytime You Use Your Microwave!" :) Good luck with that one, hee hee.

That's a great idea - I do it with lemon but since I love cinnamon, I should try it with your twist.

That's a great idea! I'll have to try it. Someone around this house likes to make chips and cheese frequently, so my microwave is none too clean!
