Hope everyone had a nice weekend!
I was very busy and this next week will be even busier because not only do i have work and yoga school, I have loads of errands I need to do before I head on over to San Francisco for the Foodbuzz festival.
Its that time of the week again, everyone’s favorite, myth busting monday! Here’s the myths of the week with some Halloween ones thrown in:
Myth #1: Plastic is better for cutting boards: Actually, this on is a toss up. Wood cutting boards are porous so they tend to soak up juices from cutting meats and fish, for example. That carries the bacteria down into the cutting board where they’re not at the surface anymore. And woods often contain anti-bacterial compounds in them so there’s kind of a natural antibiotic in the surface of the wood. Plastic cutting boards are easier to clean and are safer to put in the dishwasher, but they also will tend to develop scars and bacteria will lodge in the scars and cause problems later. So best to use woods for proteins and maybe plastic for produce. And when they get scars, toss em out.
Myth# 2: Beer before liquor you’ve never been sicker, liquor before beer your all in the clear: Dont mix your alcohol, dumb-ass. (I must give my lovely roommate credit and she works in a bar. I am not a big drinker due to some liver issues . But I have been to college, so I believe it’s valid).
Myth#3: The candy you receive will have razor blades and needles in them: You think razor blades and needles are cheap? I don’t have that kind of money to waste on hurting children. Besides, I’m so much bigger and smarter than kids are. I think most people have no intention on hurting children anyhow, its not like they walk in their halloween costumes with a wallet full of cash to steal. Unless, its Justin Beiber.
Myth #4 Goths love Halloween: I am pretty positive goths hate Halloween. It makes a total mockery of everything they believe in, like Satan, and drawing pentagrams in their own blood.
Myth #5: Green M&M’s are an aphrodisiac: I was really curious about the rumor so I decided to do some light research and visit their site. I mean after all, they’ve alluded to the whole green-aphrodisiac thing in their commercials. The Green M&M has sexy boots, so that means they know about the rumor. THEY will give me some of the straight-from-the source facts I crave. And guess what I found? A timeline. Big whoop.
Myth #6Girls who wear slutty costumes are into you: I went to UCSB, the prime college Halloween destination. From my Halloween experiences there, I’ve learned that girls who dress slutty tend to act like total whore too. Then guys get pissed they don’t follow through. Yea, THAT my friends is creepy.
For the pupusas, I simply mixed:
1/2 cup of corn flour
1/4 cup warm water
top with some sea salt and avocado
I mixed it with my hands and rolled it into a little ball.I heated up the greased skillet and place the ball in the pan and “squished” it with another pan to flatten it.
pupusa for about 1-2 minutes on each side, until lightly browned and blistered. Remove to a plate and hold warm until all pupusas are done
