    The working woman's solution

    Australians will know who Margaret Fulton is, she's a iconic chef, from the 60s and 70s (still alive I believe), very sensible food was her motto.



    Margaret Fulton's way:
    Stuff a miniature marshmallow in the bottom of an ice-cream cone to
    prevent drips.

    The Working Woman's way:
    Just suck the ice-cream out of the bottom of the cone, for pete's
    sake. You're probably eating it while lying on the couch with your
    feet up anyway!

    Margaret Fulton's:
    When a cake recipe calls for flouring the baking tin, use a bit of
    the dry cake mix instead and there won't be any white mess on the
    outside of the cake.

    Working Woman's:
    Woolworths sells cakes. They even do decorated versions.

    Margaret Fulton's:
    If you accidentally over-salt a dish while it's still cooking, drop
    in a potato slice.

    Working Woman's:
    If you over-salt a dish while you're cooking, tough! Recite the
    Working Woman's motto: 'I made it and you will eat it and I don't
    care how bad it tastes!'

    Margaret Fulton's:
    Wrap celery in aluminium foil when putting it in the refrigerator and
    it will keep for weeks.

    Working Woman's:
    It could keep forever. Who eats it?

    Margaret Fulton's:
    Cure for headaches: take a lime, cut it in half and rub it on your
    forehead.. The throbbing will go away.

    Working Woman's:
    Cure for headaches: take a lime, cut it in half and drop it in a
    double vodka. Drink the vodka. You might still have the headache but
    you won't care!

    Margaret Fulton's:
    Freeze leftover wine into ice cubes for future use in casseroles and
    sauces.

    Working Woman's:
    Leftover wine??? HELLO!!!???

    I like this. The tips given I have heard, but I definately suck the Ice cream out of the bottom of the cone. Leftover wine, not usually in this house, and I would substitute Gin for Vodka. I can't remember the last time I made a cake, but my husband is diabetic, so just occasionally a bought chocolate muffin.

    I haven't seen a Woolworth's in years. I would have to say Walmart
    now days. I went there to buy a cake and wound up spending 112
    dollars on enerything I needed. I do beads now beside knitting.
