That must be why I bought three small tins of cream of tartar when I was in the US some time ago (date still ok). The thing is, I don't think we use that stuff over here and I can't really remember what to do with it. Probably seemed like a great idea at the time. Ditto for the 12 packets of Jello.
In the meantime, my entire dining room looks like a disaster area and I'm running around like a headless chicken mumbling what has become my mantra: "it'll be over by Wednesday, it'll be over by Wednesday..." Well, I certainly hope so!
