Who is in bigger trouble?
The lady who was eating at an outdoor restaurant, unconcerned that a salt shaker was turned over on the table in front of her?
Or me who still feels the need to throw salt over my shoulder to get rid of the bad joo-joo?
Her. Definitely her.

I read a great article today —
How to Turn Your Favorite Snack Food into Seasoning
The author recommends buying a cheap grinder at your local grocery store — perhaps when buying salt or pepper — and when it’s empty, placing small, broken-up chunks of your favorite snack foods inside. Then use them as seasoning over appetizers, main dishes, desserts — you name it.
Voila — junk food seasoning.
Of course, my first thought was Cheetos.
(If you’ve read this blog before, this should come as no surprise.)
We already know that Cheetos dust is super yummy eaten right off your fingers. Imagine it sprinkled on any of your favorite foods that already pair well with cheese…like popcorn.
Now you can take your Cheetos seasonings with you. It’s certainly more portable than regular cheese since it doesn’t require refrigeration.
There’s enough preservatives in Cheetos to outlast us all.

My aunt Hennie, who left this world at far too young an age, collected salt and pepper shakers.
Really interesting ones, that my cousins and I played with any time we visited.
I saw this shaker set today while I was out-and-about and immediately thought of her.
The toaster is simply a holder for the two slices of bread, which are the individual salt and pepper shakers.
Aunt Hennie would have loved it.

Television news anchors will be reciting Morton Salt‘s famed slogan “When it rains, it pours” ad nauseam tonight after a wall collapsed at a plant outside Chicago, spilling salt all over cars in an Acura dealership next door.
Within minutes, two separate delivery trucks carrying lemons and bottles of tequila crashed into that very same lot.
No one was injured, but many people were reportedly smashed.

Did you know that 93 percent of facts are made up?
Maybe not…but I believe this chart is SPOT. ON.
Anyone else really hungry right now?

I love salt. Salt loves me. But is it a healthy relationship?
Turns out many of the salty snacks that I enjoy — and have previously eaten with a side of guilt — actually help lower cholesterol.
What the wha?
Quaker Oats waxes poetic about the cholesterol-reducing benefits of their oatmeal, but I have never seen a Frito Lay ad promote pretzels’ power — but they do the very same thing!
So do nuts and popcorn (sans oil and butter) and homemade potato chips!
And to think I have given the statin I take all the credit for my lowered cholesterol. Turns out my addiction to salty snacks may have helped just as much.
Okay, maybe not as much…but I sure enjoyed them more.
Fruit and hummus, two foods I eat several times a week, also help lower cholesterol. Who knew? I sure didn’t.
Actually, now that I read the list, I’m wondering why I have high cholesterol at all. It’s certainly not from my diet. I eat all kinds of foods that help keep my numbers down.
Oh right — I inherited it. I’d rather have money.
