I got a "kick" outta this. You probably will too!!

Tuesday, November 27, 2012

So Sunday we had family Thanksgiving. About 30 ppl. About half a dozen or so extra helpers in my kitchen. My sis made sweet potatoes but wanted to healthy them up so she just baked them and set out some butter, brown sugar, cinn/sugar, & cinnamon. The last two which came out of my pull-out spice rack.

So yesterday, I am making myself a yogurt snack. I make homemade Greek yogurt and I added some blueberries, a little more than usual in order to use up the last few in the bag. So I hastily grab the cinnamon and started to shake, when I noticed it was too light. I soon realized it was the cinnamon sugar! Okay no big deal. I hadnt shaken that much yet so I grabbed again and thought if I shake the cinnamon with gusto, it will be okay.

So I began to vigorously shake the cinnamon...and realized... this time it is too dark!! OH no!!! It was the chili powder!!! I always put my spices up in alpha order, so they tend to be in the same spot and I guess one of my helpers put them up in a different order!!! emoticon I didnt look, I just grabbed out of habit. You would have thought that after the first time, I might have learned something.

Well, I didnt want to waste it. So I decided to suck it up and eat it. Maybe it would have a nice little kick to it, it might be like a sweet & spicy flavor I would enjoy. Well, it wasn't. But I ate it. emoticon

    Sounds like my daughter's 10 yr old Harry Potter themed party. We had "potions class" where they got to mix all flavors of punch, spices, gummy worms/bears, etc but had to taste what they created. The taste testing happened outside!

    You know I always remember the statement "If you don't eat it we will only be throwing it away" so we ate it. Ant that is what you accomplished as well. Good job expressing yourself on this happening.

    LOL. I'm sorry to laugh but that is kind of funny. I'm glad it wasn't so horrible you had to spit it out and throw it away. You have now learned to check your cupboards after your helpers leave the kitchen. LOL. Keep up the great work!

    Add a little cocoa to it and that would take your yogurt south of the border! :)
(It might even remedy the chili powder/blueberry clash too!) It might be like having something reminiscent of a Mayan hot cocoa although that might be better with a dash of cayenne pepper instead of chili powder! There's a fix for everything! emoticon emoticon
