I know there's anarchy in the USA right now but are we really going to allow Pattie to go from cup to measure? I think not.

I have three sets of measuring cups. No wait, four. Four sets of measuring cups although two of them don't have two-thirds and/or three-fourths. I have no idea how y'all measure over there. Wait, yes I do. You weigh out your flour. We measure it by the cup. So there.

but bowl to

In my kitchen drawer I have a nesting set of what Patti would call measuring cups, although the pound shop sells them as measuring spoons.   (The smaller ones are indeed spoon sizes.)  Very cheap and rarely used, but sometimes it's easier to just use the measurements given when trying out a new recipe than mess around with conversions.

If you like the results then it's worth changing to familiar units for regular use.

I also have a very old American cookbook, which tells me how to cook 'honey-glazed bear steaks'.  Never likely to try that one, but it's reassuring to know it's there if I ever have a marauding bear in my back garden.  (If I do I shall probably serve them with a side dish of the accidentally ingested 'magic mushrooms' which brought the Ursine  intruder into my world.

duct sounds like-> ducked under a low beam and if it were low enough -> limbo. I confess it was a bit cryptic. But not as cryptic as swallow which was my other option. They are my 2 famous bird impressions. Duck (I duck) and Swallow (I swallow).
