I try not to do things that make additional dishes for me to wash. I don’t have a dishwasher (by choice). I AM the dishwasher. Sometimes when I have a pan of bars like this, I can get tired of washing the spatula over and over. Yes, I could put the bars in a different container – but then I have ANOTHER dish to wash. And when we have granola bars, we’re into them all day long. That’s a lot of washed spatulas.

So, I solve the problem by just leaving my spatula in the pan and putting a shower cap over it. I normally use an ugly white spatula, and it doesn’t photograph well…..sorta like me, with my mouth always open. Par. I wash it one time… that leaves me time to do other various things like dust. *Cough*
