This may only interest me, but it's one of those "life hacks" that is going around pinterest... you know, half of which are weird and silly and half of which are complete fails and the last half are actually logical and work, but you don't knew which of the three halves a pin fits into? Except some you can tell are silly from the get-go, but other than that...

(Yes, I have three halves, I are an engineer and use special math!) Wink

So this one is about the ketchup (catsup?) container you get at fast-food places.  I happened to be at one recently (shocking, I know) and grabbed an extra. I tossed it in my purse and promptly forgot about it. Surprisingly, it survived half a week of being tossed about in not-too-bad shape!

Behold!



So I went to open it up, only... mine completely flattened out.  Which makes perfect sense, since the only logical thing is for it to be a flat circle that is folded and pleated into a container.



Okay, so theoretically, then, is there an optimum side slope to maximize volume? Undoubtedly, and I'm sure someone's done a much better job of it than I, but here's a crude calculation.

On the left is the volume of a non-viscous fluid, on the right is for a more viscous fluid (like ketchup/catsup) where I assumed a 10% slope (because it looked about right based on my years of squirting ketchup into piles).



So, yes, you can increase the capacity of the container by a not insignificant 20% if you're willing to fiddle with the cup and hope that the weight/pressure of the ketchup doesn't push the cup down to a less efficient size.

...or you could just save a ton of time and effort and get a second little cup of ketchup (are there places that limit those, is that why this is a thing?).

I love that you did this, Smeddley!  I like your "second cup" method.  Cheesy

Life has been crazy for me for the past year and I have really missed trying out new recipes like I used to.  I was determined to try something new this weekend and I did!  I tried this recipe for baked chicken fajita's and then used the chicken to make quesadilla's.  It was a hit!  I would say this is probably the first chicken fajita recipe I have tried where they actually taste like what you would get from a restaurant.  Super easy and very recommended.

A pin a saved item on Pinterest... There is a link to the pin in my above post.  Once you pull that up you can click the picture and it will take you to the site with the recipe.
