Sticker Stock

When I stock up on ingredients to make special recipes for a holiday feast or birthday party, I want to be sure my family does not devour them in advance. So I devised a simple solution. I place stickers—such as turkeys for Thanksgiving, Santa Claus for Christmas or balloons for birthdays—on all recipe ingredients. It works like a charm. The kids have fun looking for the stickers in the fridge and pantry, and I am sure to have the ingredients I need for my menu! —Susan Murphy, Dover, New Hampshire
