So I just got a new kitchen scale.
I found out the following.
My cup measure holds less than a cup. My half cup measure holds more than half a cup. My quarter cup measure holds more than a quarter of a cup. My tablespoon? Yeah… THAT thing holds quite a bit more than a tablespoon.
And people wonder why it’s so hard to figure out what we eat… heck, even when you are TRYING to count right, the measures can be off.
Handily, with the new food scale, I will be able to tell… because a cup might not be a cup, but a gram is a gram is a gram.
