As I was prepping for tonight's dinner, I grabbed the measuring tablespoon and started measuring the various things needed...2 tablespoons of sugar, 1.5 teaspoons of salt, 1 teaspoon of dry mustard. I thought, why bother making more dishes to wash? Just use the tablespoon and guesstimate from there. (Shhhhh....pretty common for me to do such.) For baking, I am much more precise, feeling that it can be critical to get the proper amounts of dry versus wet, yeast, baking soda, and so on. Anyway, it made me wonder...what do others do? So, are you a fussy chef? Or, as my Uncle Frank (RIP) used to say, if you can't see it from the beach, nail it! He was a construction contractor that lived near Santa Monica Beach. He WAS good contractor! The comment was more of his philosophy on life in general. I think he had a very happy life.
