Handy Dandy Measurement Conversion Chart



The above is for real, but I also had a friend send me these, thought they were cute and for all I know they could be actual!

a smidgen = 1/32 teaspoon

a little bit = 5/16 Tablespoon

a tad = 5/3 teaspoon *

a pinch = 3/14 teaspoon

a sprinkle = 8/9 teaspoon

just enough = a shade less than too much

a bunch = 1 6/33 cup

just a dab = 1/6 of 3/8 cup

a handful = 3/7 of small hand, 9/11 of a large hand feels right = your guess is as good as mine!

As you can see, it is all tongue-in-cheek. Someone had a lot of fun with fractions!

And this is the Housewife's Lament:



Too little to save,

Too much to dump;

That's what makes

The housewife plump.
