Sriracha Salt

We go through a lot of Sriracha in our home, it tastes amazing on basically everything from noodles to meats to eggs. I've seen that you can buy Sriracha salt on amazon, but I figured I'd make my own, which is so easy to do. It adds a little extra oomph as a finishing touch to your dish.

Sriracha Salt
1/2 cup coarse grain sea salt
2 tablespoons Sriracha

Line a baking sheet with a silpat or parchment paper.

Combine salt and Sriracha in a bowl and mix until combined. Pour mixture onto prepared baking sheet, and spread into an even layer. Let dry at room temperature until no longer moist (this took about 36 hours for me), raking through it with a fork a couple of times during the drying process.

After a really emotional and difficult week in Boston, we all found some solace in the capture of the second suspect in the Marathon bombing. This weekend was filled with beautiful spring weather, and Greg and I went downtown to see how things look; there were little memorials set up at all different parts of the end of the marathon route, and a huge one at the end of where all the barricades currently are filled with flowers and notes of hope and strength.

A moment for Boston

Yesterday at work I was following headlines to see the progress of the Boston Marathon, which is basically a holiday in the city. Boston is always bustling and full of excitement on Marathon Monday. The weather was perfect. Then I started seeing tweets popping into my feed about explosions at the finish line and the day took a nosedive from there. I cannot believe such horrors could strike so close to home.

Thankfully my friends and family in Boston are all safe and accounted for. But my thoughts and prayers go out to those who have lost people, and those who are recovering from horrific injuries.

How Arnold Palmers Arnold Palmer

The Arnold Palmer (aka the 'half and half') is one of my favorite drinks; half iced tea, and half lemonade. So refreshing, and not overly sweet (and the grown-up version, the "Arnold Pummeler" with sweet tea vodka and lemonade is pretty darn good too). But how does golfing legend Arnold Palmer order his namesake drink? Steve Politi finds out:

"[Politi] chased Kelsey, the waitress serving Arnold Palmer yesterday, back to the bar where she was putting in another drink order.

“How did Arnie order his drink?”

“He leaned over and said, ‘I’ll have a Mr. Palmer.’ Then he winked,” Kesley said."

A-Z Crayons

Artist Diem Chau has an amazing knack for turning everyday items into tiny yet extremely intricate pieces of art. I am completely enthralled with her crayon alphabet carvings (pencils are another medium that she transforms into fabulous carvings). Just amazing
