exodus For example we got one of those lids to put on dog and cat food cans but then we wound up not using wet food for the dog so now I use it to seal up my condensed milk. I just realized that’s a little funny.
Does it make it more or less goofy that I ended up doing the exact same thing with the exact same kind of pet food lid, even down to the same little cartoon dog/cat face? I used a red one with a dog face, but it had the exact thing with the ears sticking out as handles.
Condensed milk is one of the few things other than dog food that come in a small-ish can that, once opened, you’re probably not going to use all at once. Plus it’s thick, sticky, and moves according to mysterious physics in general, so moving it into a secondary container from the can is just guaranteed to cause some kind of mess. That lid thing was just collecting dust in my drawer after Princess Picky Eater decided she didn’t care for the expensive wet food I was buying to entice her to eat regularly, so I felt like a genius when I realized that lid had a second use.
I think this is an example of great minds thinking alike to solve a very specific problem, which is ultimately still goofy.
DaveedNoo do you use the milk for coffee/tea?
I used it to make blended Vietnamese style coffee shakes, which is espresso (or some kinda strong coffee), condensed milk, and ice, blended in a ice-crushing capable blender.
