Works For MePlaying Works For Me Wednesday with Shannon at Rocks In My Dryer again. This week's idea is a simple thing. For the longest time I have hated my colanders. It seemed they were always either tipping over, letting all the spaghetti slop into the sink. Or I would have that dreaded drain backup problem-- you know, when the disposal hasn't been run and the water backs up into the sink....and into your pasta. Yech.... (Please tell me it's not only me who has this problem!)
Anyway, I finally got fed up a few months ago and went on a colander hunt. I found this beauty for $15 at Walmart. The colander is huge--a plus for my family! It is suspended at the top edge of the sink with sturdy arms. The arms are adjustable to fit varying sizes of sinks, and the whole thing is very stable. You don't even have to totally empty the sink of dishes because it sits so high. Works for me!!
