Multitasking is for sissies


In school, teachers were always trying to to get us to figure out the meaning of words without looking them up in the dictionary.  The strategies were various, from using context clues to breaking the word into separate parts.  Little did they know that one day I would own a Kindle that would take all of the work out of defining with just the touch of a screen.

However, there are still certain words that few dictionaries contain, but whose meaning is apparent just from reading them.  Take the word unitasker, for example.  It might seem unfamiliar at first, but think on it a little more.  Still nothing?  Chances are that you have a least one of these babies in your kitchen right now.  I'll give you a hint-any item that was specifically purchased for use with corn-on-the-cob is probably a good fit for this category.  

For more on unitaskers and the delight they bring to foodies everywhere, hop on over to my post today at Endless Simmer.  Now, where did I put that egg slicer
