Why Didn’t I Think of That?

Every once in awhile I see someone do something in the kitchen that
is so simple and practical that I wonder why I never thought of doing
the same thing.  Today it happened while having lunch at the seafood
counter in Whole Foods Market. If you haven’t eaten there, I highly recommend it.  It is probably the best quality and most flavorful seafood around in such a casual environment.  The store near me is amazing (Emeril taped an episode there last year so I think that says something), with five interior mini restaurants,
a full wine bar, classes – it’s my favorite store. 
And I heard they give away a free baby tree to every customer on Earth Day. 
I am so going to get my tree this year! 
I’m sitting at the counter watching one of the chefs cooking and assembling fantastic looking food and I noticed that rather
than slathering oil over the fish by hand or pouring from its container, he had a spray bottle and just sprayed it over the pan or the fish on what appeared to be an as needed basis.  
Maybe others have seen or heard of this, or already do it yourself,
but this method was new to me and I thought it was brilliant!

    Yea, I'm like you. I would have never thought of that, but boy is it brilliant! I actually have a spray bottle (in my kitchen!) with no purpose right now. I think you just gave me one. I'm stopping by from 504 Main. You have a great blog!
