Easy Clean-up From Holiday Baking

I've baked so many pound cakes in the last 24 hours that I've lost count!

This little area is where I've stuck myself this year to do Christmas baking.  Notice the sheet on the floor? Since I'm always in a hurry and looking for short-cuts, I put a sheet and pillowcase out where I usually spill or drop flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, chocolate and a little of everything else. At the end of the day, I just pick up the sheet  from the floor and the pillowcase from the counter and put them in the wash with other dirty linens. No sweeping, no mopping, no scrubbing. Instant clean!

Maybe you think I'm lazy; maybe you think it's innovative.  It doesn't matter to me 'cause I like not having to do all that cleaning when I'm already worn out. 

Now, if I could just find someone to assemble the ride-on toy for my grandson!  I've never seen so many pieces and parts for one toy in my life!!

I love this idea and could have used it yesterday. I made a mess making pies. I've still not cleaned everything up. Oh well, now I know what to do.

Have a terrific day and may you and yours have a very Merry Christmas. :)
