+++Enter At Your Own Risk+++ At the gentle nudging (I said gentle y'all) of a few friends, I have started these blogs in order to share my culinary goings-on and daily misadventures through my own brand of humor (ok, sarcasm). I just write about stuff! At 50, I have learned that living has gotten in the way of life - and I am going to blaze my own personal trail to fun (hopefully)! If it is feminine, great. If it is not, so much the better! Hopefully fun that does not land me in jail............

What the ?????? What You Lye'n 'Bout Willis?

When I make it out to the Sunrise Supermarket in Knoxville, I typically find plenty of oddities to giggle at, ogle over, be confused in, and sometimes grossed out by.  This most recent trip did not disappoint.

Lye Water? Do we get to skip the soap all together?
Get rid of your enemies this way?
Clean your pipes, for real?

FYI, it is used for curing many types of food including but not limited to Century Eggs, Lutefisk (Lyefish), Green olives and etc.

I am not going to try this one...  Just Say'n

What the ???????? Just Dew It!

So on my trip to the Sunrise Asian Market in Knoxville I found this treat!

Almond Dew?  As opposed to Almond Rain?  Almond Mud?  Almond Paste?

From what I can tell it is to Almonds what Rose Water is to Roses.  Not as strong as an Almond Extract but a lighter version that could be used in cocktails, dessert creams and etc.
