Just a bunch of randomness for you today.
Has everyone seen The Help? I'm assuming so, since it's been #1 forever now. If not, I'm not giving away any spoilers here, so no worries.
Remember that little bit of advice for cutting an onion? To reduce the tears? Remember? Well, I did. The advice was: stick a match in between your lips.
I know...what the? Well, since I start literally sobbing when I look at an onion, I decided to try it out today. And can I just say....it didn't work. I thought everything in the movies was true, so I was really disappointed to learn that this isn't the case.
Also, I have a little, tiny, tip for you. It's tiny. Don't get too excited. We love to eat rice in this family. It's yummy. Well, here's our trick for instant yummy rice. While the water comes to a boil (did I mention this was instant rice? Oh yes, we are chefs in this house), we add a chicken bullion cube.
Also, when it says to add 2 cups water, I always add 1/4 cup LESS than what it calls for. Somehow I would always get that extra bit of watery yuckiness if I added the whole amount. This is a perfect reduction for less-watery-yuckiness.
Also, why do bad things always happen to mommies? Am I the only one that seems to get knocked around? I was trying to water my flowers for pete's sake, and I ended up tripping, spilling the water all over ME and....
....oh yes....breaking my little toe. Sigh. It's a lovely shade of green and purple right now. I hope no one fainted out there in blogland. I have to say, though, it actually looks much better than it did a couple of days ago. It was HUGE. Like I had attached a little sausage to the end of my foot. I've been limping around for days now.
But, on a bright note, I'm glad my purple pedicure is still going strong!
