Shake it!


Just a wee tip: A few things are mighty handy in shakers. Sure, salt and pepper are standards in most kitchens - we have a pepper mill, which is prone to leave pepper in little piles on the counter. Keep it on a wee condiment plate and the plate will catch the pepper, saving lots of mess.

The aluminum shaker has flour in it. It's wonderful when I need to flour the counter to knead bread, roll piecrust, etc. Very, very handy.

The wee glass shaker is cinnamon and sugar - great for turning a slice of toast (or a plain pumpkin pancake) into a real treat!

I have powered sugar in one as well, good for making stuff "purty."

Oh, Georgia! I just got the prettiest, pale-pink glass shaker at a yard sale, and I was trying to figure out what to put in it - powdered sugar would be perfect! Thanks, dearie!

That little glass shaker is so adorable! I was going to ask where your powdered sugar shaker was. Heehee! So, now I'll be waiting to see a photo of the little pink shaker ~ pink is my favorite color...therefore, I already know it's going to be adorable, too!

Hey Cat!
I use one for sugar and cinnamon too! My grandchildren think cinnamon toast is a real treat.
I never thought of having one with flour handy though,thanks!
God bless,

Hm. I really thought it was a pale pink shaker, but now I'm not sure if it was just a trick of the light. It's still pretty though. I wish there had been more of them, but the other odd glass jars that looked like shakers didn't have tops, and I was afraid I'd never find the proper size. (Not that I really need more!)
