What’s the biggest screw up in the kitchen that you were responsible for?

I forgot to take the burner covers off.


What, in your opinion, makes people believe absurd conspiracy theories?

Three reasons:

The desire for understanding and certainty: Uncertainty sucks. Conspiracy theories provide a sense of understanding and certainty that make everything feel better.

The desire for control and security: Conspiracy theories provide a needed sense of control over the ambiguity of life.

The desire to maintain a positive self-image: Studies show marginalized people are more prone to believe in conspiracy theories.


In 40 years what will people be nostalgic for?




Is a hot dog a sandwich?  

Aw, man, this one is tough!

A sandwich is defined as “an item of food consisting of two pieces of bread with meat, cheese, or other filling between them, eaten as a light meal.”

So… yes. A hot dog is two pieces of bread (a bun is technically two pieces of bread) with meat (the hot dog), and condiments, eaten as a light meal. Unless you’re me, then it’s eaten as a full, glutinous, my-stomach-expands-like-a-boa-constrictor meal.

But the National Hot Dog and Sausage Council says no. “Our verdict is…a hot dog is an exclamation of joy, a food, a verb describing one ‘showing off’ and even an emoji. It is truly a category unto its own.”

I hear you don’t want to mess with the folks at the NHDSC, so I’m going with no. It’s not a sandwich.

What wonderful thing happened to you this week that you’d like to share?  It can be a gratitude moment or something that just made you feel very happy at the time or made you laugh.

Fall is coming.

  1. I admit to LOLing at the burner covers on the burner…I’ve done that one too, until I finally got disgusted from having to throw them out and stop using them. These days I have a ‘glass’ burnerless stovetop with the burner wires or elements fused into the glass. It’s great, no more grunge down under the burner or burnt covers…the only draw back is that if someone hits the stovetop with something heavy, it’ll probably shatter. And they are wicked expensive to replace from what I’ve heard..

  2. Oh, sorry, forgot to add “Thanks for sharing your world this week…very interesting answers…I liked the hot dog one very much. Who are we to argue with the NHDSC? Not ME… o.O
