So many of us shop at the big box stores like Costco or Sam's Club. We buy all sorts of things at Costco, from paper towels to bananas and many things in between. One item we purchase regularly is olive oil. The Kirkland brand of olive oil ranks up there with the best of them. My only complaint is that it comes in two, large, unwieldy, un-kitchen friendly containers. Pouring just a smidgen of olive oil out of these large jugs is not likely to end well.
Here is a solution: buy a small, plastic bottle from the grocery store-- the kind you'd find ketchup served in at a diner or restaurant-- and fill it with olive oil, refilling from your large container whenever you run low. This smaller bottle allows you much better control of the amount of olive oil you use at one time. I am sure I picked up this tip from the hours of watching the Food Network, you can learn so much more than just recipes on those cooking shows!
