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.
