My cousin Bob sent me a link a few weeks ago with directions on how to make salt. “Make salt?!” you say?! Yes! I made salt!
Step one: Get a gallon of water from your nearby ocean.
Step two: strain it through cheesecloth a few times.
Step three: boil the crap out of it for a few hours to evaporate the water.
Step four: salt some cucumbers and eat them! Delish!
I’m a little bit worried about the fact that Millstone is right across the bay…I’ll let you know if I grow two heads next week hahaha.
Other notable firsts:
* I had never left a box of crayons in a car and then had them MELT!!! the sadness.
* I had never thrown a party while my parents (aka roommates) were out of town. Rule #3 on their list was “No Keggers!” We didn’t throw a kegger, but there WAS a lot of beer there…..
* I had never known that rolling your Rs was not genetic! Apparently, I can learn this skill!
