thursday things – how to shuck corn in the microwave, how to remove grease stains, and a hedgehog’s birthday party

pusheen ice cream

Happy Thursday~ It is extra happy for me because I’M GOING ON VACATION THIS WEEKEND!!!

We are fleeing the oppressive 100+ degree heat and suffocating 50% humidity of Phoenix’s monsoon season for the cool 70 degrees and ocean breeze of San Diego. Can’t wait.

Meanwhile, The internet…

Earned over $40k for this guy to make potato salad

Taught me how to shuck corn in the microwave

Explained why some of you hate cilantro (with science!)

Reminded me of my love for goats

TheKitchn taught me how to remove those pesky grease stains (since I refuse to wear an apron for some reason).

Food52 helps me learn how to pit stone fruit so that I can stop buying it pre-sliced (aren’t they nice?)

And remember that hamster with the burrito? Well, they just celebrated his hedgehog friend’s birthday.

 

You’re welcome.

  1. I’m so far behind on blog reading and commenting….and look you went and got a whole new blog header! I love it! I hope your summer is going well, Natalie :) Off to catch up on your posts now!!

  2. High fives to the internet, seriously; some weeks it’s like the best thing ever. And i just noticed the potato salad dude is from Ohio: please tell me you know him. I think the best thing he could do it at this point is take his newfound internet fame, Find Jeni Britton Bauer, formulate a potato salad ice cream (you know she could do it) and rule the world.
    you just saved my corn-shucking life. i HATE doing that!
    also, you buy “pre-sliced” stone fruit? do you also have a private jet i don’t know about, FANCYPANTS MAGOO? where do you even GET pre-sliced stone fruit?!?

    i don’t know how to fully express how adorable that birthday party for the hedgehog is: i only know that it’s time i begin seriously considering owning a hedgehog.

Somethin' to say? Share it here!
