With a family of 4 fussy eaters to feed (well actually, 3 fussy eaters and myself) I do a lot of research on the internet for new recipes.
The problem is I often find great recipes but they’re in imperial measurements and I have to convert them.
Actually, it’s not that big a problem ‘cause I can use the Excel CONVERT function.
After all, I already have Excel open to do my meal plan so it’s easy just to type in the formula while I’m there. Oops…I may have revealed too much about my nerdy behaviour there……quickly moving on.
