The Definition of a "Crap Ton"

I say a lot of random things. I've recently realized that my response to things is often "sparkles". Something happy? Sparkles! Something not happy? Sparkes with sarcasm! Yeah, I don't know why I do this either. I also sometimes declare "Christmas!" when good things happen. Go figure.

But when discussing large amounts, I like the expression "crap ton". What is a crap ton exactly? Well here is a crap ton of goat cheese polenta:

Giada and I had a disagreement this weekend over exactly how much is "6 side dish servings", because after dishing out 5 side dish servings of polenta there was still all of the above left! That is like 13 servings Giada!! (But it's okay, Giada, I still love you. And apparently you can freeze polenta!)

In other amusing kitchen anecdotes, Danielle and I baked cookies this weekend before making dinner (with a crap ton of polenta) and while we baked cookies, I needed a sink to de-thaw the pork tenderloin in, so I put it in the bathroom sink. I thought it was pretty entertaining.

This might be the picture ID that appears when I call my sister-in-law now. Cool.

I will never forget when we defrosted a "crap ton" of chicken wings in the bath tub!! It always brings a smile to my face when I think of all the weird things we've done when cooking and preparing food that would horrify some gourmet chefs! :-P

To de-thaw or un-thaw is to freeze. Thawing would be un-freezing and un-thawing would be un-un-freezing, which is freezing.
