TheMisterT uses a fresh kitchen towel from the drawer whenever he bakes a boule, which is pretty much weekly. Something to do with the rising - I don’t concern myself with these kinds of details.
He’ll also use a couple of clean towels when par-boiling lasagna noodles. So I decided to make him some special towels for these projects. Two lasagna and one boule; the boule one has stencil on each end.
I kept the design to the ends so I can be sure they are food safe - plenty of room on these towels for their purpose outside of the stencil.
I had some escaped paint, because I was using too much paint and/or using a brush that I hadn’t dried thoroughly enough before using with a different color of paint. Oh, well. At least these aren’t for display.
Did you tell him, or is he going to get a chuckle when he pulls one out of the drawer?
@gozer Oh! These are for Valentine’s Day and he has a special bread-baking tote, so they’ll go in there.
Love them all; such a fun and practical gift!
Those are great!
I got a pack of that kind of towel just for breadmaking. Then I switched to low carb eating. Fortunately, hubster loves the towels for drying dishes, so they’re getting good use.
@steiconi Everyone raves about flour sack towels for household stuff, but I find their proportions so awkward! These are actually half-towels; I cut and hemmed them. They’re never even remotely square, either.
Wonderfully personalized. The best kind of gift.
Something that he needs or will use regularly, with some sassy love thrown in? That’s a perfect gift tight there!
Thank you, both!
@Bunny1kenobi We’re of an age that really useful gifts are often the best! And we’re of a proclivity that leans towards fun and punny!
