However, now I am well, and I got out my new scale today! Here are some pictures of its first use:
New scale on left...old scale on right!
Weighing out 1 oz of Tillamook Medium Cheddar. (When I have cheese, I would rather have a small amount of the real stuff.)
I am vegetarian, so rely on cheese and dairy for some of my protein. Rather than buy the expensive pre-packaged string cheese, babybels or cheddar squares, I buy a larger size from Costco and slice it myself. Of course, cheese is on the high-fat side, so I want to stay very aware of how much I'm having! I've been using an antiquated scale...maybe from the 70's? (Okay, I'm making that up, but it IS very old and I think it's actually supposed to be a postal scale.)
This new scale makes it SO easy to measure out 1 ounce, and put it in separate ziplocks. All ready to go into my bento-box-style lunch box for work (from Laptop Lunches) Then I re-use the ziplocks for the next round.
Thanks SO much to Tracy at MyTinyTank (her facebook page is here: MyTinyTank) and to Karen at EatSmart Products (their facebook page is here: EatSmartProducts) for this wonderful gift!
