That’s right, tin foil.
Every week I try to find something to be grateful for. Something ordinary around the house that typically escapes notice because it’s become so mundane. Kitteh here reminded me that tin foil – or aluminum foil, whatever, tin is easier to type – is just such an item.
When I was a little girl, I loved foil. I used to make “mod” clothes for my Barbie dolls. Of course, they couldn’t move around much but they looked cool. My friend down the street was impressed by my creativity.
When I became a homemaker, foil took on whole new qualities. Useful for cooking, keeping splatters down in the oven, keeping the oven floor clean, cooking things on a grill, and even helping with minimizing dishwashing by lining pans.
I don’t know when foil was invented, but it sure didn’t take long for it to become one of those kitchen necessities. I know I use it probably every week for one thing or another. It’s one of those things I reach for often, and no kitchen is really complete without it.
It’s also great for hats.
