What I Learned This Week

The difference between caramel and butterscotch is that caramel is made from burnt white sugar and butterscotch is made from burnt brown sugar.

I still don’t care about the Tony’s.

Dance companies pretty much use the same music that they used when I was in dance recitals almost 10 years ago, and I’m pretty sure 10 years before that.

A bath towel is not an acceptable substitute for a yoga mat.

You can’t make a souffle without special ramekins, which are not that expensive, but Kyle says if I buy one more thing online he’s going to kick my ass.

Sometimes cuddling needs to trump all other activities.

If the waitress asks if you guys need anything else and you ask your husband if we wanted another pitcher of Shocktop and he doesn’t answer right away, the waitress will decide that the answer is yes and bring you one.

I don’t read enough.

Even though I hate being cold, I do much better running in the cold than the heat.

Banana ketchup is good on sweet Italian sausages.

    I’ve never understood the whole ramekin thing…I mean, honestly, what high-maintenance dessert requires its own special baking quarters?

    I feel like I have missed something amazing… what is banana ketchup?!

    My in-laws brought us some back from St Lucia. Technically, it’s mashed bananas, sugar, vinegar, tomato paste and spices; literally, ketchup but replace the tomatoes with bananas. But when you taste it, it’s…it’s sweet and tangy and a hint spicy. When Kyle and I first tasted it our response was, “Huh…it’s…huh.” But used similar to ketchup or mustard, it’s really good.
