I'm reminded of an old tune, "..♪...it may be silly, but ain't it fun! ♪" Ah, yes-- it might be silly to like gadgets, but,... gadgets that make food preparation easy without being expensive can be a good thing!
Above: For years, I've had the grater on the left-- it has places for 'small grating' and 'larger grating'. I thought all was good-- that was, until Paula brought me the grater on the right with the much larger grating openings. Now, when I don't need 'small/medium gratings' and I'm in a hurry, I grab the one of the right (I like it!). On the plate, you can see the size of cheese that each of the 'grate holes' make.
There's something else I like the large grater for: When a recipe calls for softened butter and I only have 'cold stuff', I quickly grate it and in almost no time at all,-- like magic!-- the butter has softened.

FOOD, FOOD, FOOD! I'm such a FARMER at heart-- even a CALF knows that so much in life is about the FOOD! (A bit of a "bio" about me can be found way down near the bottom.)
You can find a recipe index entitled "Labels" down along the right side, starting below the picture of the farm. Then, below the "Label" list are pictures of some of my old "standbys"-- click on their picture and it should take you to the recipe.
You will see no advertising on my blog; this means there is no monetary benefit for me having "visitors" or "joiners"-- having said that, if you do wish to JOIN my blog, you can do so by scrolling w-a-y down to near the bottom of the page...
