Muffins in the oven

I just noticed on m box of Bisquick that it says 'to maintain freshness, refrigerate after opening'... WTF?  NFW.  I guess I've spent years and years enjoying extremely stale Bisquick.  I don't have enough room in my fridge and even if I did... no.  If I lived in the south where bugs abound (or used to), maybe, but in downtown Seattle where no self respecting bug would hang indoors, no.

Turns out, the reason I never considered hand washing dishes was that I didn't have the tools!  No place for wet dishes to drain. No good scrub sponge or brush.  No good dish soap.  When the dishwasher died, I invested in all those things. I have a nice little dish drainer that sits in the second sink where the dirty dishes used to sit.  I am using the dishwasher again but big items that I don't use a lot - the big bowl I mixed the muffins in, the pan I cooked the sausage in last night and some other miscellany and hand washing the smaller, more frequent stuff - my favorite rubber scrapper/spoon, plates and cutlery.

The big benefit is that the kitchen is staying very tidy which I love.
