A Few Random Notices

Jerome put a very serious face on and told me that potatoes are very funny.

He also made his bed all by himself this morning with nobody telling him to do so. He saw that his siblings did it, and he decided he ought to as well.

Let's say you managed to run out of seasoned salt (the kind you only buy to make Chex Mix, which you replaced last year, which means you made a whole lot of Chex Mix, and ate most of it, but we won't mention that part), and you are iced in with six children and had planned on making Chex Mix this morning. You can use this instead, and then never support the seasoned salt cartel again:

2 1/2 tablespoons salt
1 tablespoon sugar
1 teaspoon paprika
1 teaspoon garlic powder
3/4 teaspoon celery salt
3/4 teaspoon turmeric
1/2 teaspoon corn starch

Mix well and use in Chex Mix.

Chocolate marshmallows are addictive and impress everyone.

The end.

Thank you for the seasoned salt info; last year, I ran out of chili powder, and called my mother to ask her what the ingredient list was on her jar, so that I could sub it in with the PLENTY of other spices that I have. It took several minutes to convince her to read me the list of spices, because she couldn't believe that there would be an ingredient other than just "chili powder." But then, she was also shocked -- shocked! -- to find out that garam masala wasn't a spice, rather a blend.
