I don't know if you realize this or not, but there are a lot of folks out there who are very angry about the fact that grape flavored things do not taste like grape at all. I was thinking about this while eating an apple that was so sour and juicy and crisp, it actually tasted like an apple Jolly Rancher. Then I realized something. Something PROFOUND. All these artificially flavored grape and apple and cherry things (by things I mean Candy) are based on the flavor of the fruit's JUICE. The Juices really do taste different than the whole fruit!
So there you have it. Grape flavored Charms lollipops are not a fraud, they taste like grape juice.
This is me pondering my profound realization. OK seriously, recycled pictures for infinity until I get my act together and figure out how to be a real blogger.
Today I tried to make a quiche. I think the recipe was in Redbook or some other classy mag I swiped from the gym. I love reading magazines at the gym, it is on my top 5 favorite most relaxing things to do. On my top 5 least favorite things to do is cook. I'm so lazy, but more importantly, I take all kinds of shortcuts and cheats (ahem, lazy) so my cooking is truly horrendous. So one step was to whisk egg whites for 30 seconds. Being too frakkin lazy to move my hand in a spinning motion for 30 seconds, and not wanting to ask the BF where a whisker was, I grabbed this little frothing stick we got for christmas. I whirred the egg whites til they were all frothy on top, and continued with the recipe.
It turns out that frothing your egg whites makes your quiche look like lemon meringue pie, and taste like coffee since someone (me) was so bad and cleaning the frother the first time it was used. I ate most of it anyway.
I'm off to see the King's Speech. We need to be prepared for the Oscar's you know? Colin Firth is nominated for prom king this year in the strange pageantry that is movie industry award season. So far, I'm pretty enamored with Mark Zuckerburg (which is what I now call Jesse Eisenberg).
What's that you say? Another outdated picture? ok.
Ah yeahhhh, Toon Town.
