Duct tape! I was thinking the very same thing. One of the very essential essentials of life - along with WD-40.

Speaking of duct tape, I got a "set" of duct tapes one time, in neon yellow, orange, blue, and green. I have found these useful for labeling things, but the original reason was to attract bugs! They are attracted mainly to the yellow, but certain ones are attracted to the other colors, and I would attach pieces of them around the garden, brush or spray it with tanglefoot, and the tape would get covered with bugs.

So don't use yellow duct tape to label food containers!

Larry, you did not almost screw up dinner. You just created a whole new dish. You must again create it so your family will know what a genius you really are.

Just looking for ways to avoid buying something new when you have something that pretty much works already.
The vinegar bottle actually has 2 stripes of bright red electrical tape. I guess not bright enough

BTW, Larry, have you ever tried Adobo, from the Philippines? If you had really added too much vinegar, you could have just told them that the menu had changed, and you were fixing adobo!

Surprisingly, I never heard of it, but thanks for the heads up. I learned something today.

Luckily, it was that much vinegar I had added, just enough to throw off the dish and require a little culinary maneuvering to camouflage my innocent error.
