Got a hankering for biscuits today. While "cutting the butter into the flour+" using a tool that I have no idea what it's name is (and while I assume I'm using it as it was intended, I'm not positive) it went "sprong". This tool has a plastic handle, and metal loops that connect from one end of the handle to the other. The screw that had fallen out was obvious, but the nut that had been holding the screw into the handle was nowhere to be seen. I wasn't even sure that it had fallen into the pre-dough. What to do... Went over to the metal door, removed the sheaf of papers, setting them aside, retaining the Hard Disk Magnet that the wonderful spouse had bought me a while ago. Cleaned it off a bit, and then moved it through the flour. Yep, the nut _had_ fallen in!
I figured I'd inaugurate my new fancy "Silicone, non-stick" rolling pin. Eventually figured out how to get it out of its box. Read the directions and had to laugh. It's non-stick. It suggests that the dough be chilled before using it, and if the dough becomes un-chilled, fridge it longer. It suggests other rolling techniques. I had to think of magic diet pills that don't work if you eat anything other than celery.
