My new toaster makes a beeping noise when it’s done, that sounds very similar to the initial bleating of my smoke alarm. Making nachos is really causing me a lot of undue stress.
Random food preservation tip that I recently learned (and have more recently tested).
To keep your carton of ice cream/frozen yogurt from forming ice crystals/freezer burn, after you open it, put an oversized piece of plastic wrap on top of the container, before you put the lid back on it. I tested it, after 3 weeks, still perfect with the plastic wrap. Without it, it only took 4 days for little crystally bits to start forming.
