Can;t sleep but toooo tired to actually do anything constructed so sitting here bored and surfing the web.  Found some kewl information or ideas that I didn't know or hadn't even though of  LOL  So thought I would share with you and hopefully you will find something useful.

                    (Good to know for the next time you go bread shopping)

- Take your bananas apart when you get home from the store. If you leave them connected at the stem, they ripen faster.. I didn't know that!

- Reheat Pizza Heat up leftover pizza in a nonstick skillet on top of the stove, set heat to med-low and heat till warm. This keeps the crust crispy. No soggy micro pizza. I saw this on the cooking channel and it really works.

-Expanding Frosting: When you buy a container of cake frosting from the store, whip it with your mixer for a few minutes. You can double it in size. You get to frost more cake/cupcakes with the same amount. You also eat less sugar and calories per serving.

-Get Rid of Ants: Put small piles of cornmeal where you see ants. They eat it, take it 'home,' can't digest it so it kills them. It may take a week or so, especially if it rains, but it works and you don't have the worry about pets or small children being harmed! 

- Taking a trip? Forget about packing those huge containers of toothpaste, antibiotic ointment, shampoo, and conditioner. Just insert a small amount into a straw, cut to size and melt the ends together. This could also work for condiments such as ketchup and mustard, couch medicine, even small pills. *Note: I know that burning some plastics can cause harmful chemicals. Please do some research before trying this.

- Clean out a ketchup bottle and add your pancake better. This will allow you to squeeze out as much as you want without dealing with all the mess. This would also work great with mustard and honey bottles, or any other squeezable bottles
