Lime Frugality and Toothpick Versatility

Say you need just a little fresh lime juice.

Toothpick to the rescue!

Make sure the lime is at room temperature (if it's straight from the frig microwave for 30 seconds) to get 30% more juice. Roll on countertop with the heel of your hand until it softens. Take a toothpick - pierce through the skin into the fruity part - squeeze out amount needed - reinsert toothpick and refrigerate for later use! What a deal!

Speaking of frugality - might be something much needed in these present days. Here's a thought:
"Being frugal does not mean being cheap! It means being economical and avoiding waste." --Catherine Pulsifer

Wishing you wisdom in frugality,
Nancy
