I don't like to write large quantities...it 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.
