I don't like to write large makes my hand hurt.

I don't like to type...I'm not very fast.

I don't like mice...they are gross, disease ridden, vermin.

What do these 3 things have in common?

There was a mouse in my recipe drawer, leaving treats and chewing holes in recipes I've written or printed. I have to touch those to use them. Say it with me now...GROSS!

I have emptied my drawer of everything but my cookbooks (and cleaned it) and I am currently moving all of my recipe cards to 8 1/2" x 11" pages. Since I don't like to write I am typing 2-3 recipes per page and I have filled 5 pages. At this rate I may finish before Halloween.

My plan to foil any new rodents (as I'm out to get any who may enter my domain), is to put each page in a page protector in a 3 ring binder. I can simply Clorox wipe or take soap on a rag to a page before I use it, just in case. I'm a little grossed out can you tell.

The page protectors should also help with those nasty spills and smudges I get on my recipes. I've needed to do the type ups for a while some of my newer, written recipes ended up on the backs of envelopes and on post it notes.

Mice. Blech! Good luck with your plans there.

Mice and rats is why I own air rifles. Many of them! Don't have any mice or rats in my house. Oh yeah, rat traps work too.
