As a food lover and poor college graduate, my passion for yumminess and my dismally stocked fridge sometimes makes for disastrous results. Take for example, the following incident:
It’s late. I’m thirsty. There’s only water, so depressingly different from a nice cold coke I’m craving.
Looking into the pantry, I spot a near empty box of tea. I’ll make iced tea! Ten minutes later, I find myself holding a glass of iced earl gray looking around frantically for half and half, milk, or creamer. No such luck.
But then, it occurs to me that I do indeed have a type of creamy and smooth substance that has the ability to soften a sharp flavor without dulling it- butter! And so, I put a spoonful of butter into my tea and mixed it in as I imagine Paula Deen would. And it was disgusting.
