At the beginning of this year, I decided that I wanted to become more consistent in my culinary efforts and endeavors. I’m a decent cook, but I lack motivation to make ‘composed’ meals with a lot of different components, or to try a whole bunch of new recipes. Yet, when I do attempt to create new dishes, I generally have some fun with the experimentation – and I always learn something (which is super-fun for me in-and-of itself; I simply adore learning. Geeky, but so true.). Anyway, to hold myself accountable to attempting at least one new meal every week, I started a recipe blog, and stated that I would post a recipe every Sunday. And once I make a promise in public, it’s a done deal.
This past weekend, I made a dish that called for some pancake syrup. I don’t eat syrup very often, so I opened a new bottle specifically for this recipe. As I peeled back the plastic safety seal covering the neck of the container, I noticed a tricky little opening in the cap. Have a look for yourself:
Once again, clever products delight me! It really is the small things in life… 🙂
