I swear this is NOT turing into a foodie blog, but you never know when inspiration is going to strike. In this case, it happened in my kitchen. 🙂
After my recent culinary disaster, I decided to cook a super-delish Sunday dinner for me & the fella. I settled on Coq Au Vin. This classic from Mastering the Art of French Cooking is simply THE best way to prepare chicken that I have ever discovered.
One of the ingredients, other than chicken, cognac, mushrooms, carrots, and wine (hence the vin), are these little guys:
As I began cooking, I was filled with increasing dread at the amount of dishes I would have to wash later.
Especially when I noticed the terrible condition of my dish scrubber.
Wait a sec…this looks vaguely familiar…
Those plastic onion mesh bags are about to start a new life as Dish Scrubbers!
I folded each of them inside each other, making sure the raw edge was firmly tucked inside.
I ended up with this!
My Coq Au Vin turned out wonderfully.
And thanks to my new eco-friendly dish scrubbers, cleanup was a breeze!
I’m quite happy with this sustainable solution to my scrubby situation.
And I promise to get back to fashion tomorrow. 🙂
