I almost forgot! It’s time for my regular thankfulness post! Once a month I try to find something small, something taken for granted, to be thankful for.
Today, as I was rinsing off my tallow, after its 4th washing, I set it on cooling racks to dry off. Nothing fancy, just your ordinary gridded cookie cooling racks. And I realized how glad I was that I had them, because I didn’t want to set all that tallow down where air couldn’t get to it to dry it off.
When I got them, I never realized how much I’d use them. I use them for their intended use of course, cooling homemade cookies, but I also use them for drying things, like my bricks of tallow, or bars of homemade soap. I use them to cool cake layers, as large trivets, anything I might want raised to keep from scorching the counter, or anything I might want to get extra air circulation. They’re a little thing, I mean, you don’t really think about cooling racks, do you? I never did, never even had any until I was an adult. Now they’re so useful and handy I don’t know how I ever got along without them.
Is there something you’re thankful for?
