I’m working on cleaning and reorganizing everything in my tiny apartment, I started about a week ago and am tackling tiny projects each day.

Last night I found a bag of what I thought was palm sugar (at like 1:30 am) and put it in the kitchen to have with my tea today. Except. It wasn’t palm sugar. It felt weird as I put a couple pinches into my tea, and I realized it was bamboo flavoured salt.

That was a no. That was a BIG no.

So I made another cup, and added some real, regular sugar to it. And some coconut milk. And I’m still drinking it.

Tea good. Tea with a lot of salt, though? That’s bad.

Mistaking salt (or msg) for sugar is one of my biggest tea/cooking nightmares :P ..whereas coconut milk and this tea together sounds great.

Yeah, the coconut milk is good in tea. :) I get the Aroy-D tetra packed coconut milk for tea, because it seems to integrate better.

Oh, dear. Reminds me of the long ago Downton Abbey episode where Mrs. Patmore made dessert for a dinner party with salt instead of sugar. :(

That sounds like something I would do! There’s a reason why the salt and sugar go in very distinct and separate places in my kitchen…

i did that with coffee before…soooo gross!

OMGsrsly

At least I realized before I drank any!

The Cookie Lady

I once baked about 200 caramel shortbread heart-shaped cookies to take to school for Valentine’s Day. I baked them the night before and was planning to put the finishing touches on them in the morning. I was running late, so I just arranged them on a huge platter and tossed sprinkles and granulated sugar all over the top. Or did I? Turns out I sprinkled a whole bunch of salt over the top instead of sugar. Luckily, they still tasted pretty good as long as you gave the cookie a quick shake-off before eating them :)

OMGsrsly

Well, salted caramel… that might work! :)
