Tuesday's Tip

Don't you hate it when you're at a fast food restaurant and you squirt your ketchup on a napkin and it leaks through and tears the napkin? How many times have you tried putting ketchup on your napkin or on the waxed paper that surrounds your burger? It always manages to make a mess. Since we're all traveling this summer, the likelihood that we will visit a fast food restaurant is pretty high. Mama Henley's family ate at a Chick Fil A on the way home from the best camp ever, Camp Greystone. My mother in law met us in Atlanta, and she shared a tip from my sweet father in law. He used to take the lid from a drink and put the ketchup on the plastic lid. Brilliant. Why didn't I think of that? Instead, I've been mopping up nasty ketchup napkins for years. Don't be like Mama Henley; try Papa's trick instead! Happy Tuesday's Tip!

Oh my gosh....I was just thinking as I was reasing this, "maybe the drink lid would do the trick". Too funny, but great idea.

Somebody I know does that, but we just put the ketchup directly on the fries.
