The Girl Who Ate Everything

Blogging about food and whatever since 2004.

one of those sad food things

I got a jar of applesauce today. Why? Because I was in the mood for apples but not for buying whole apples, which seem to give me funky digestional aches. So I have this jar of applescause just begging to be opened (because it spoke to me) and...and...

THE DAMN THING WOULDN'T OPEN! I tried a few times. I got some rubber bands for added friction. I whamed the lid as though that would help. Nothing. I'll try again later.

I like plain yogurt. With honey. But without honey it's still good, I just happen to have honey.

I bought vanilla beans for the first time today. Of course, I've had food with real vanilla beans in it before but I never bought them seeing as they're about $11 for two pods. I smelled the beans and hot damn, what a good smell. One of the best smells in the world. Totally worth it. Oh, I didn't just buy them to SMELL, I'm going to make pudding at some point. No one makes apple vanilla pudding methinks so once my jar of applesauce decides to open I'll make that.

Apple-vanilla pudding sounds yummy. Tangent: A friend of mine was talking about how vanilla extract has alcohol in eat. So when she and her friend put a whole lot of extract in their coffee because they didn't know what they doing, they got caffienated and drunk at the same time.

A stuck jar can be opened by making a small hole in the lid. The jar is hard to open due to vacuum inside, this will change once you let air in. This reduces the shelf life of the jar in question, but is rarely a problem, and certainly not in this case. Jams keep forever anyway.
